Jah Life In Dub

CD (Item 759340) Deeper Knowledge, Early 80s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

A never-issued record from Jah Life – and one that stands with the best dub efforts from the time! The set features wicked rhythms from the Roots Radics band, recorded at Channel One – then mixed into sublime echoey territory by Scientist, with a style that's every bit as his own great records, but even more subtle and focused! The drums have this brilliant crackle at all the right moments – and guitar and keyboard lines trade off amidst just a bit of vocals from time to time – on tracks that include "Shaolin Dub", "Jah Life In Dub", "Skylarking Dub", "My Heart Is Dub", "Collie Dub", "Bounty Dub",a nd "Moonlight Dub".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Still sealed.)

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
