Dub / Reggae Throw backs/ devastating jams

Post by cluster » Tue Nov 16, 2010 6:25 pm

Hey friends,

Trying to track down all of your favorite reggae and dub artists. Albums in particular would be appreciated. I've always been a fan of Lee Perry production.

A few of my favorites-
Heart of the Congos by the Congos
Harder they Come soundtrack Various artists/Jimmy Cliff
"The Upsetter" early Lee Perry production comp

there are others but they escape me at the moment.

I met a guy named Shine Head the other day at my job and he absolutely destroyed his set. I HIGHLY recommend any dub fans check out SHINE HEAD!!!

I don't have very many dub albums but Scientist rids the world of the evil curse of the vampires stands out as the best :sb:

Also check out The Aggrovators (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Aggrovators). Great stuff.

The dual Marcus Garvey/Garvey's Ghost is indeed awesome.

Mad professor is immense. Saw him a year or so ago in birmingham dubbing a live band, was so good!

Ok, so I clicked on this thread to praise the awesome Dub splendor of Best Dressed Chicken in Town and Scientist Rids the World of the Evil Curse of the Vampires and y'all are already way ahead of me.

But yo, +1 to those two. Great stuff.

You will be hard pressed to find deeper Black Ark sounds than 'Heart of the Congos' but there are some other Scratch classics:

Max Romeo - War Ina Babylon - has 'Chase the Devil'
Junior Murvin - 'Police and Thieves' probably the most popular Scratch production
Meditations - 'No Peace'
Scratch's - Super Ape, Roast Fish, etc

Trojan made a bunch of great Scratch comps in the 90s that might be still be available. I had several 3/4LP and CD sets full of magic.

Keith Hudson was an early dub innovator worth checking out - 'Pick A Dub' is the first full dub album and there are some interesting and out there tracks on 'Rasta Communication' and 'Brand', but those records can be hard to find. New Order covered a very rare Hudson track called 'Turn the Heater On' on a 1982 Peel session!

Modular website that references Heart of the Congos and no one has suggested the RVNG Intl collaboration that The Congos did with Sun Araw & M.Geddes Gengras?!

[video][/video]

Stallones and Gengras subsequently set up Duppy Gun Productions after that trip, where they took Dancehall/Dub instrumentals they'd made at home in LA over to Jamaica to record MC's. The compilation of all the 12"s they've released is great.
