"Features the original Lee Perry 'Upsetter Mix' entitled Rally Dub (taken from Yabby You's Jesus Dread album) and a great version of the 'Run Come Rally' anthem by rave rockers Apollo 440 -- Howard Grey the old dub 'n' punk mastermind in the house with mix programming from Simon Crom. The original was cut at the Black Ark circa 1974 and is to be found on the double CD compilation of the artist/producer's finest moments compiled by Dub Vendor's Noel Hawkes (BAFCD021). Apollo 440 quotes their mix as follows: 'Central to working method is the idea of the recording studio as an instrument. Everyday for spiritual uplift and sonic inspiration we turn to the Old Testament prophets of dub -- Lee Perry, King Tubby, Scientist and the other innovators at the controls, alchemists of magnetic iron oxide who prepared the way for all those of us who make electronic music. The opportunity to have Yabby You's righteous words and Lee 'Scratch' Perry's dubbery pulsing through the console at our Apollo control was to good to miss, it was a pleasure and a privilege. Dedicated to Adrian Sherwood, Mikey Dread, The Ruts, Jackie Mittoo and the UB's who taught me how to skank.'"
