2008 release. One of the two great chapters in reggae's history was the DJ phenomenon that conquered the sound systems in and around Kingston town in those heady 1970s; the other was the dubplate specials that allowed the DJs to explore a tune in the first place. Giving some fine question and answers to its original vocal; emphasizing its meaning or taking it into another subject matter altogether. When you have these two styles and add to it that original vocal dubbed in at various points, you get a fantastic melting pot that lifts a tune and can take it almost anywhere it likes. But what makes the set of cuts chosen for this release that little bit more interesting are the working of the dubplates and effects alongside these vocal talents. Adding another layer to this musical cake. A fine selection of tunes worked over by the cream of the 1970s DJ circuit. U Roy, I Roy. Jah Stitch, U Brown, Dillinger, Prince Jazzbo, Dennis Alcapone, and the vastly underrated Shorty the President alongside some classic King Tubby dubs -- surely a match made in heaven. Includes two tracks not included on the LP version (JRLP 028LP).
