Various 'Soul Jazz Records presents Studio One Dub - 18th Anniversary Edition' 2xLP
Heavyweight special edition, one-pressing-only, orange coloured double vinyl plus digital download.
18 years on from its original release, ‘Studio One Dub’ remains super- hard hitting, featuring classic and rare dub tracks from Studio One, many available on vinyl for the first time in over thirty years.
‘Studio One Dub’ includes the dubs of many classic tracks, such as Horace Andy’s ‘Skylarkin’, Johnny Osbourne’s ‘Truth and Rights’, John Holt’s ‘Hooligan’ and Freddie McGregor’s ‘Bobby Bobylon’, plus many more rare tracks.
The album also comes with two rare interviews - one with Clement ‘Sir Coxsone’ Dodd about dub and dubplates and one with the sound engineer Sylvan Morris, talking about his ground breaking period at Studio One and the many innovations that he evolved there. In short, this is a 100% essential album.
“Soul Jazz’s ‘Studio One Dub’ collection cannot help but to serve as loving tribute to Sir Coxsone Dodd. This giant of a man not only defined popular music for the isle of Jamaica, but for the world over, his innovations laying the foundations for hip-hop, dance and post- rock [...] Dodd's dubs drew on such a fertile ground of classic Jamaican rhythms that he rarely missed. As such, it's difficult to find fault with the versions presented here and many of these cuts are ridiculously rare [...] This burning set celebrates Dodd's extraordinary life by mashing time and space until it's joyfully suspended. What better tribute could there be?” - Pitchfork
