A New Chapter, indeed! New Chapter In Dub is one of Aswad's definitely one of his best records of the early 80s – and it's actually right up there with some of his best work, period.

A party time indeed! This is the follow up to Night Food, and a set that nearly equals its predecessor, as a great example of what Leroy Sibbles and the Heptones were capable of when teaming up with Lee Perry!
