✨✧ King Tubby & The Agrovators/Delroy WilsonDubbing In The Back Yard/Go Away Dream (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Pressure Sounds, Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Extremely hypnotic dub from King Tubbys & The Agrovators – and a record with a sound that's every bit as stripped-down and laidback as you might guess from the image on the cover! The approach here gets right to the core of instrumental dub – and tunes are very stark and spare – with a completely sublime focus on splashy drums and deeply rumbling bass – often with hardly any other elements to set things off! Bunny Lee produced the tracks with a very uncluttered approach – none of the heavy mixing that might have lead to more abstract version cuts – and just a heavy focus on the bad-stepping, slow-moving elements are the core. Titles include "Relaxing Mood", "Hot Weather", "Mountains Rain", "Hideaway", "Natural Glow", "Plantation Run", and "Summers Eve". 2CD version features bonus tracks – including "Dubbing In The Ghetto", "Dub Them Under Manners", and "Majestic Dub Stylee". CD2 includes the Go Away Dream album – a fantastic record from the great Delroy Wilson, and a set that's dubby at the core, but also has a righteous sense of soul too – almost a Jamaican extension of the hippest styles of early 70s American soul! Delroy's vocals are wonderful – very powerful, even without trying too much – and set up amidst some great production from Bunny Lee that really makes the whole thing shine like a slow-burning dark star – a perfect vibe that's laidback, but never lazy – and a great change from some of the more polished early 80s Jamaican soul. Titles include a great remake of the Chi-Lites "Go Away Dream" – plus "No More Heartaches", "Spit In The Sky", "When She Was My Girl", "I Can't Take You Back", "I Can't Fight It Anymore", "Won't You Come Home", and "Silhouette Silhouette".
