WirePink Flag ... CD
EMI/Pink Flag, 1977. Used ... $9.99
One of greatest of all British punk era records – released in '77 and one that transcends mid-to-late 70s punk cultural baggage better than just about any other – a real benchmark! Wire kept it short and sweet on Pink Flag – with 21 tracks in about 35 minutes – and it's as artful as it is succinct. They'd prove to be as creatively ambitious as any of their peers and the brevity Pink Flag would soon make way for experimental flourishes that are ultimately just as important and influential, but this still might be their best. Includes "Reuters", "Field Day For The Sundays", "Three Girl Rumba", "Ex Lion Tamer", "The Commercial", "Strange", "Different To Me", "12 X U", "Start To Move", "Lowdown", "Surgeon's Girl", "Pink Flag" and more.

Diamanda Galas looks out of a window on the cover – as so many of us have been doing in the Spring of 2020 – and the issue also features a special look at Music In the Time Of Pandemic – very fitting, as Galas is returning to the subject of disease and diaspora on her new album! The Pandemic feature brings together artists and writers from around the world, looking at the new musical realities – with a lineup that includes Mariam Rezaei, Yan Jun, Mai Mai Mai, and Bruce Russell – amidst other articles on Dale Cornish, JC Leisure, Ono, and David Behrman – plus Amon Tobin on the Invisible Jukebox!

Lots of warm bass, snapping drums, and smooth keyboards – handled with a depth and difference that sets this one out a bit more from the usual downtempo crowd. There's some vocals from track to track that kind of drift and sift in the mix – almost scatting or vocalese, but not quite.

BuzzcocksDifferent Kind Of Tension ... CD
Liberty/Domino, 1979. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
The third album from the great Buzzcocks – one of the most fiercely melodic bands of the punk era, and one of the best bands for tuneful, yet barbed songwriting of the late 70s, period! Different Kind Of Tension is a pretty accurate title for this set, the last of the first wave of the group's career, with weird electronic flourishes and artier sounds to be found than the furiously straightforward previous couple of records. It's not as radical of a change of pace as, say, Wire's progress from the first to third albums, but a different kind of tension, as they say. Titles include "Mad Mad Judy", "You Say You Don't Love Me", "Hollow Inside", "I Believe", "Radio Nine", "Paradise", "Sitting Round At Home", and "I Don't Know What To Do With My Life". CD

CodeineBarely Real (2LP & CD set) ... LP
Sub Pop/Numero, 1992. New Copy 2LP & CD (reissue)... $12.99 24.99
The second of three hugely influential releases for Codeine – '92's Barely Real – a vital piece of a body of work that would have a very real impact on many bands to follow! The original Barely Real is either a generously portioned EP or a mini-LP – with 6 tracks that deliver on the promise of the preceding Frigid Stars LP – while also showing an evolving approach. The core trio of Chris Brokaw, John Engle and Stephen Immerwahr get an assist from Jon Fine on "Jr" – who lays down an additional wave of noisy guitar texture. David Grubbs contributes the solo piano and arrangement of the song "W." – a cool collaboration and a nice little creative side-step of Codeine's now-established sound! Numero's excellent double vinyl version features the original album on one LP and a full LP of bonus material! Titles include "Realize", "Jr", "Barely Real", "Hard To Find", "W." and "Promise Of Love". Bonus tracks include "Jr (Demo)", "Tom (Demo)", "Wird (Demo)", "I Wonder (Demo)", "Hydroplane", "A L'Ombre De Nous", "Realize (Demo)" and "Broken-Hearted Wire". All tracks restored from the original masters, the vinyl comes in a high quality gatefold sleeve, with an insert booklet of with notes/essays by esteemed admirers.

A double-disc set that documents the live efforts of the Free Music Ensemble – a power trio featuring Ken Vandermark on reeds, Nat McBride on bass, and Paal Nilssen-Love on drums! The style here is very much in the legacy of Vandermark's trio work of years past, especially in association with Scandinavian players – a mix of searingly intense numbers and other more introspective ones – often performances that are focused strongly around sound textures. One CD here features a 2005 Boston show, and the other includes a concert the next day, recorded up in Montreal (some travel schedule there!). Titles include "Exit The Republic", "Drift", "But Only Almost", "False Rabbit", "On A Wire", "Looking At Dutch Stairs", "New Reference", "Ottica", and "Montage". CD

✨✧ Vijay Iyer SextetFar From Over ... CD
ECM, 2017. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic statement from pianist Vijay Iyer – an album recorded with a sextet who really seem to help the artist leap forward strongly with a more spiritual vision than ever before! The group is great – with Graham Haynes on cornet, Mark Shim on tenor, Steve Lehman on alto, Stephan Crump on bass, and Tyshawn Sorey on drums – and in addition to boldly-phrased work on acoustic piano, Iyer also plays some Fender Rhodes – used in more spacious ways that are extremely beautiful, and which we find far more soulful than some of his more abstract use of electronics! The set's quite a surprise – both for ECM and Iyer – and titles include "Poles", "Far From Over", "End Of The Tunnel", "Down To The Wire", "For Amiri Baraka", and "Thrednody". CD

College Of Knowledge (Australia), 2020. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Heavy funk from an Australian group who take their name from one of our favorite funky 45s of the 60s – a combo who try hard to live up to that legacy, but also add in plenty of their own touches too! The keyboards and guitar are surprisingly well-crafted – so much so that they often go past the straighter rhythmic modes of a funk record, and often soar out with solos that might even be deemed progressive if these guys were given a bit more space on the tracks – but in a way that's maybe even more interesting, given the brevity of the tunes! Titles include "Haunted Boat", "Slappy", "Funky Mummy", "I Don't Get Art", "Space Language", "Do I Cut The Blue Wire Or The Limewire", and "Hump Day Hymn". LP, Vinyl record album

The songs and overall sound blend vintage inspiration with sly modern touches, from a breezy group soul style over Stax-y horns, Cali psych soul guitars over impressive harmonies and seriously effective lead vocals from front man Andy Platts, often with ambitious instrumental elements with bits of flute, strings and piano. Includes "You Make My Life A Better Place", "On The Wire", "I Need A Win", "Diamond In The Bed Jar", "London Girl", "The Spooks", "We", "Golden Days", "Strangers On A Street" and "This Is The Day".

Virgin, 1998. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99 21.99
A heavier, darker prime era set from Massive Attack – and rightly remembered as a classic! The grooves are still really strong, but the trip hop pioneers are delving more deeply into a bass heavy dub trip with a deep, rumbling bottom running throughout the tracks and some distorted guitar and reverb drenched key and sample bits punctuating the cuts and moody vocals. Stunningly strong to this day – which is no mean feat given the rapid musical evolutions of the 90s onward! Includes "Angel", "Risingson", "Teardrop" (which features vocals by Cocteau Twin Elizabeth Fraser), "Inertia Creeps", "Exchange", "Dissolved Girl", "Man Next Door", "Black Milk", "Mezzanine" and "Group Four". 2CD set features a 20th Anniversary mix of the record – and a bonus CD with a Mezzanine Mad Professor selection of mixes – all handled by Mad Professor, with titles that include "Metal Banshee (Mad Professor mix one)", "Teardrop (Mazaruni dub one)", "Group Four (security forces dub)", "Wire (leaping dub)", "Inertia Creeps (floating on dubwise)", "Angel (angel dust)", "Exchange (mountain steppers dub)", and "Risingson (setting sun dub two)".

One of the greatest albums ever in the history of funk – the first album by The Meters, and virtually the blueprint for countless funk records to come! The album's bubbling over with classics – all hard-hitting instrumentals played by the group in an effortlessly tight style, produced to perfection by Allen Toussaint and Marshall Sehorn in their classic 60s New Orleans style. A blinding masterpiece of bass, drums, and scratchy guitar – with tracks that include "Cardova", "Cissy Strut", "Sophisticated Cissy", "Here Comes The Meter Man", "Ease Back", "Ann", "6V6 La", and "Live Wire".

✨✧ Charles MingusRight Now – Live At The Jazz Workshop ... CD
Debut/OJC, 1964. Used ... $10.99
Charles Mingus caught live is a totally different experience from Mingus in the studio – as this crack album from 1964 will testify! The album features a stripped-down quartet that includes Clifford Jordan on tenor, Jane Getz on piano, and Dannie Richmond on drums – plus a guest appearance by altoist John Handy on one of the album's two tracks. Although you'll recognize the titles – "New Fables" and "Meditations (For A Pair Of Wire Cutters)" – as two of Mingus' more famous compositions, the versions here are extremely long (over 20 minutes), and show the less-composed side of Mingus' playing – one in which he allowed soloists to have much freer rein than usual, and really stretch out with their sound! Jordan and Handy take more than ample use of this space, and wail away mightily in some of their best recorded work from the time. Nice stuff, and one of the best mid-60's Mingus albums! CD

The deepest work to date from Vibration Black Finger – a group headed up by UK drummer Lascelle Gordon, and who effortlessly mix together acoustic jazz elements and other sonic elements – very much in the best spirit of some of their contemporaries on the London scene! Gordon's drums and percussion are at the core of each number – but the instrumentation shifts a fair bit as the set goes on – with flute, piano, keyboards, reeds, and bass from a variety of different guests – including Nat Birchall on tenor and Julie Kjaer on alto and flute! There's a few vocal moments – courtesy of the great Maggie Nicols and Ebony Rose – but most of the set is instrumental, and titles include "Soul Fire", "Only In A Dream", "Persia & Cornelius", "Twelve Wire Byrd", "Gutkind's Dream", "Can't You See What I'm Trying To Say", "Acting For Liberation", and "Empty Streets".

Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Seminal spy sounds from the 60s – a treasure trove of spy-themed tunes, and one that features loads of material you might not hear otherwise! The set doesn't feature the big hits from the James Bond films, and instead includes all the great little records that sprung up in the wake of those movies – cool jazz, vocal, and instrumental records that sometimes feature weird reworkings of more famous soundtrack numbers, sometimes lesser-known cuts from b-grade films, and sometimes fresh new spy numbers on their own! The style ranges from groovy guitar numbers to blaring jazzy tracks to slinky steppers that find a very cool balance between suspense and swing. Titles include "Dr Goldfoot & The Bikini Machine" by The Supremes, "The Last Of The Secret Agents" by Nancy Sinatra, "Theme From Danger Man" by Red Price, "A Man Alone" by John Barry, "Deadlier Than The Male" by The Walker Brothers, "Burke's Law" by Wynton Kelly, "We Should've" by Cleo Laine, "Our Man Flint" by Billy Strange, "Theme From Where The Spies Are" by Jimmy Smith, "The Liquidator" by Shirley Bassey, "I Spy" by Roland Shaw, "Come Spy With Me" by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, and "High Wire" by Brian Fahey.

Treasure Isle/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A record that's brimming over with pride for the new musical grooves coming out of Kingston – and a rare compilation on the legendary Treasure Isle record from producer Duke Reid! The tunes here are great and gritty – almost as if Reid was finding a way to capture the energy of a sound system in the studio – with lots of booming beats, rumbling basslines, and the kind of standout instrumental and vocal passages that give each tune a special sort of hook! The instrumentals are maybe the most compelling – as they'll use a spare organ line or sax solo to craft surprisingly hypnotic sounds – which are then balanced out strongly by the soulful vocals on the other cuts. Titles include "Boom Shaka Lacka" by Hopeton Lewis & The Chosen Few, "Wake The Town" by U Roy, "Hopeful Village" by The Tennors, "The Ball" by Earl Wire Lindo, "What Does It Take" by Alton Ellis, "Sunday Gravy" by Earl Wire Lindo, "Condition Bad A Yard" by The Ethiopians, "Rule The Nation" by U Roy, "Dynamite" by Tommy McCook, and "White Rum" by Earl Wire Lindo. 2CD set has an insane amount of bonus tracks – 28 more Duke Reid productions, and 17 more produced by Byron Smith – 45 more tracks, including work by King Sporty, Tommy McCook, The Barons, Winston Jarrett, Nora Dean, The Ethiopians, Hopeton Lewis, Alston Barrett, The El Dorados, Dorothy Reid, and many more.

Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s. Used ... $14.99
The deeper roots of the pre-punk generation – not the obvious garage acts of the 60s, or the early rockers on the New York 70s scene – but a whole host of very underground acts who recorded in virtual obscurity, but had a sound that paved the way for huge musical changes to come! The package is easily the most compelling in the Punk 45 series – as it brings together a number of artists we'd never have heard otherwise, from both sides of the Atlantic – plus a few others we know, but forgot were ever this raw or loud – all laid out in one searingly nasty, abrasive set that really shows that punk didn't just start with the Pistols or Ramones.

A far ranging anthology of material from the British reggae and ska pioneer Laurel Aitken – 2CDs featuring early material from the late 50s to late 60s – and a second disc featuring material from '69 to 89! The first disc features numbers that start with kind of mento or Caribbean r&b groove that rolls into more of pronounced reggae & ska vibe later in the track list.

Hannibal/Rhino Handmade, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best-remembered Richard Thompson moments of the 80s – and a set that's also a bittersweet farewell to his years with Linda Thompson too! The album may well be the Rumors of the folk rock scene – but it's also got a quality that's more personal and pointed, too – songs that really show a lot of evolution in the style of not just the Thompsons, but also the production talents of Joe Boyd – who manages to make the music sound surprisingly biting for the time – really shaking off the trappings of early 70s British folk rock, but without losing any of its depth. Titles include "Don't Renege On Our Love", "Walking On A Wire", "Just The Motion", "Shoot Out The Lights", "Did She Jump Or Was She Pushed", and "Wall Of Death". Features full bonus CD of live material, and a nice book too! CD

Columbia, 1960s/1970s/1980s. Used 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
The first entry in the Bob Dylan series from Columbia – and maybe still one of the most important – as it really focused on the kind of special material that had been changing hands in the underground for decades – part of that secret knowledge that would always make diehard Dylan fans sneer at anyone who only knew the official albums! There's some really amazing stuff here – especially great album outtakes, especially from classics like Freewheelin Bob Dylan and The Times They Are A Changin – plus some unusual 70s moments, weird early demo and live tracks, and lots more. Despite the large date rate, the set skews pretty heavily towards the mid 60s – which represents probably 50% of the material, alongside a good chunk of 70s tracks, and a few scattered 80s and 90s moments. Titles include "House Carpenter", "Hard Times In New York Town", "Mama You Been On My Mind", "Sitting On A Barbed Wire Fence", "Wallflower", "Santa Fe", "Who Killed Davey Moore (Live)", "Paths Of Victory", "Talkin Hava Negeilah Blues", "Let Me Die In My Footsteps", "Man On The Street", "Suze (The Cough Song)", "Seven Curses", "every Grain Of Salnd", "Catfish", "Tell Me", "Series Of Dreams", and lots lots more.

✨✧ VariousGay Jamaica Independence Time (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Treasure Isle/Music On Vinyl (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A record that's brimming over with pride for the new musical grooves coming out of Kingston – and a rare compilation on the legendary Treasure Isle record from producer Duke Reid! The tunes here are great and gritty – almost as if Reid was finding a way to capture the energy of a sound system in the studio – with lots of booming beats, rumbling basslines, and the kind of standout instrumental and vocal passages that give each tune a special sort of hook! The instrumentals are maybe the most compelling – as they'll use a spare organ line or sax solo to craft surprisingly hypnotic sounds – which are then balanced out strongly by the soulful vocals on the other cuts. Titles include "Boom Shaka Lacka" by Hopeton Lewis & The Chosen Few, "Wake The Town" by U Roy, "Hopeful Village" by The Tennors, "The Ball" by Earl Wire Lindo, "What Does It Take" by Alton Ellis, "Sunday Gravy" by Earl Wire Lindo, "Condition Bad A Yard" by The Ethiopians, "Rule The Nation" by U Roy, "Dynamite" by Tommy McCook, and "White Rum" by Earl Wire Lindo.

✨✧ Massive AttackMezzanine Remix Tapes '98 – The Mad Professor Mixes ... LP
Virgin, 1998/2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Mad Professor's moody remixes and dubby takes on classic Mezzanine material – created in '98 and intended to come out that same year as a companion piece to that most legendary of Massive Attack albums – but them most of it was shelved for more that 20 years! With such such an inventive producer/remixer working with such brilliant original material, this is not only a stellar companion piece, it's a timeless effort that stands strongly on its own, too. A few tracks escaped the vaults back in the day as B-sides, but it's pretty revelatory to hear it all after all these years. It hasn't aged a day. Includes "Metal Banshee (Mad Professor Mix One)", "Angel (Angel Dust)", "Teardrop (Mazaruni Dub One)", "Inertia Creeps (Floating On Dubwise)", "Risingson (Setting Sun Dub Two)", "Exchange (Mountain Steppers Dub)", "Wire (Leaping Dub)" and "Group Four (Security Forces Dub)".

VariousTotally Wired & Illicit Grooves – Acid Jazz – The Birth Of A Scene 1987 to 1990 ... CD
Acid Jazz/BGP (UK), Late 80s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Tremendous grooves from the earliest (and best) years of the acid jazz scene – all recorded at a time when London was exploding with sounds from the 60s and 70s, and turning out some of the hippest music on the planet! Although the term "acid jazz" was soon mishandled and mis-managed here in the US, the earliest days of the movement were really a tremendous time in London – a period when folks returned to the core elements that made funk, jazz, and soul great – and shook off all of the too-electric and too-stiff modes that had crept in during the 80s! Most of the work here is in a really spare, stripped-down funky mode – a cross between soul jazz of the 60s and blacksploitation funk of the 70s, with possibly a few more contemporary elements thrown into the mix. And in these years way before the current deep funk revival, what's even more important is the way these songs were produced – with a warmth that other groups hadn't had in years, and a real love of the way these tracks might have sounded in older studios a few decades before. The package contains a number of key rare singles from the Acid Jazz label, other album tracks, and even a few classics that had a big influence on the London scene. Titles include the rare pre-Acid Jazz single "Got To Give" by The Brand New Heavies, the sublime "Rejoice In Righteousness" by Bukky Leo Quintet, and the tracks "Cut & Run" by Lay Zee Muthas, "Like A Gun" by King Truman, "The Killer" by Night Trains, "People Get Ready" by The Brand New Heavies, "Haw Right Now" by Patrice Rushen, "Earthly Powers" by Man Called Adam, "Mr PC" by Snowboy, "Spinning Wheel" by New Jersey Kings, "Let The Good Times Roll" by The Quiet Boys, and "Mighty Mouse" by Caesar Frazier. Loads of great notes too – a really detailed look at the London scene at the end of the 80s! CD

BedheadWhatFunLifeWas ... LP
Trance, 1994. Very Good+ ... $43.99
The first album from Bedhead – a 1994 record that helped usher in something of a quiet revolution in 90s indie rock – paving the way for lusher, moodier and slower soundscapes, soon be dubbed slowcore! Bedhead is as much a breath of fresh air a couple decades later, delivering a timeless, moody sound that takes some cues from the vibe of the Velvet Underground at their mellowest, and more recent trailblazers like Spaceman 3 – but ultimately deliver their own distinctive, and now oft-imitated sound. Includes "Liferaft", "Haywire", "Bedside Table", "The Unpredictable", "Landlord", "Crushing", "Unfinished", "Powder", "Foaming Love", "To The Ground", "Living Well" and "Wind Down".

FallRough Trade Singles ... LP
Rough Trade/Superior Viaduct, Early 80s. New Copy ... $19.99
Fantastic early work from The Fall – some key singles issued by the Rough Trade label as 45s during the first few years of the group – already a great showcase for the mad wit of Mark E Smith! While we love the albums from this time, these singles are maybe the songs we go back to again and again – as they sometimes have surprisingly catchy hooks, even while maintaining an edge – and often resonate with that Smith sense of humor that sometimes takes a few listens to pick up on! Tracks include "Totally Wired", "Putta Block", "How I Wrote Elastic Man", "City Hobgoblins", "The Man Whose Head Expanded", "Ludd Gang", "Kicker Conspiracy", "Wings", "Container Drivers", and "New Puritan".

GearboxGearbox Automatic Turntable ... Turntable
Gearbox (UK), New Item ... $549.99
A little turntable, but with a mighty big sound – thanks to a vacuum tube that really improves the quality of the playback! In a world where so many small turntables are cheap and shoddy, the Gearbox Automatic is wonderfully overbuilt – a compact unit, but with a glass platter and belt drive – all built by Pro-Ject, including the tonearm – which is also fit with a great Ortofon cartridge! Although pricey, the unit is designed to open up, plug in, and play right away – with Bluetooth connectivity that will let you connect to any wireless speakers, or great RCA outputs that will let you plug into a full audio system for even better sound! The controls are simple and elegant – and the whole thing is encased in a clear body that lets you see everything inside. The turntable is also an unusual analog/digital hybrid – as it's internet-enabled, for track tagging and addition to your streaming services too. The unit has its own wifi network, which allows you to connect to your phone or device – so that you can see pop-up artwork of the album that's playing, and also add tracks from the record to your Spotify playlist as well. But even without all that digital mumbo-jumbo, the whole thing is totally cool – great sound, great design, and some higher-end audio components – but all in this very compact package! Turntable

Boddhi Satva18 ... CD
BBE (UK), 2020. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 18.99
A double-length collection of work from Boddhi Satva – a retrospective of sorts, as the package features tracks from the past 20 years of his career – but maybe more of a special celebration of his talents, as the album brings together special projects, collaborations, and under-exposed mixes and tracks! As with all Boddhi Satva's music, there's a quality here that matches his African roots and role in the contemporary global scene – music that resonates strongly with the vibe of key collaborators on the package – who, with Boddhi Satva, have helped forge a new sense of cross-cultural growth in house music that will continue for years to come. Titles include "Manda Island" by Afefe Iku, "See The Day" by Alton Miller & Boddhi Satva, "Until Our Work It's Done (Boddhi Satva's ancestral rmx)" by Gabriele Poso, "Born Again (Boddhi Satva & Mr V retouch)" by V, ""Moina Ya Mokili" by Boddhi Satva & Abel Tabu, "Into The Shadows (Boddhi Satva ancestral soul rmx)" by Jay Tripwire, "Mama Kosa" by Boddhi Satva & Kaysha, "Kanga Mutu" by Boddhi Satva & Spilulu with H-Baraka, "Sweet Brown Sugar" by Boddhi Satva with E-Man, "The Depth Of The Source" by Boddhi Satva featuring Yuba, "Belma Belma" by Boddhi Satva & Maalem Hammam, "God Is Love (Boddhi Satva ancestral soul mix)" by DJ Pippi vs Danny Marquez with Marcel, and "Bria's Offering" and "Big Theme" by Boddhi Satva himself.

Brownswood (UK), 2011. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent work by a group with a very unique vibe – one with African roots, but a sound that's really transformed through their presentation – given bits of odd rhythms, dubby production, and other nice touches – yet all in a way that still respects the core essence of the music! The project almost feels like some lost New York downtown groove from the early 80s – maybe the best bottom-heavy sounds on 99 Records, or some of the New Africa work on Celluloid – but with a laidback vibe that's perfect for the Brownswood ethos, too! The group are a London collective, with a rich post-colonial approach – and for this set, they're also working with help from Joseph Nymungu of Nairobi – who sings a bit and plays nyatiti. Other instrumentation includes nyidounge, percussion, guitars, and plenty of bass – plus some occasional guest farfisa and omnichord from Damon Albarn! Titles include "Gone Thum Mana Gi Nyadhi", "Odera Lwar", "Wires", "Hera", "Margaret Okudo (dub)", "Hera", "Owegi Owando (solo)", "Nabed Nade Ei Piny Ka (rework)", and "Here On The Line". CD

✨✧ Augustus PabloAugustus Pablo At King Tubby's (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Attack/Radiation Roots (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Augustus Pablo at his trippy best – blowing the melodica over a host of sweet dubby rhythms all produced by Bunny Lee! In the hands of Pablo, the instrument seems like it was made to be used best in dub – as the "wind piano" has this sound that's as personal and mystical as the rhythms that give it support – blown by Agustus with this style that's very different from some of the more mainstream melodica modes – with a very improvisational approach, and a sound that expands and contracts in volume, depending on the lungpower used at each moment! Pablo's made plenty of great records in this mode, and this may well be one of the best – as you'll hear on cuts that include "Desire Dub", "Musical Pablo", "Barbwire Dub", "Maka", "Best Dub", "Foggy Pablo", "Rough Pablo", "A House Is Not A Dub", "Blind Dub", and "No Gesturing Pablo". CD also features two bonus tracks – "Ride Me Dub" and "Every Dub I Own". CD
