New links & decryption codes for Prince Far-I Chapter 1 & Prince Jammy - see comments.

Jamaica is home to so many styles of music: earliest Jamaican folk music, calypso, mento, reggae, ska, dancehall…too many to represent here, or even name them all. Everyone familiar with this Zero, & I don’t mean Earl, knows that 'the style that makes me smile' is DUBwise!!! Of course, to me, there is no greater dub than that of the King himself, King Tubby. “Tubby’s makes you wiser/Tubby are the Dub Organiser”. The only dilemma with King Tubby (as well as with the Prince – Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry) is not whether but what.

I have many many releases by the King, so if you don’t like what I’ve chosen or want something else, just leave a comment & request. I’ll see what I can do. But for now, I’ve picked one that I never tire of, King Tubby & Friends – Dub Gone Crazy: The Evolution of Dub at King Tubby’s 1975-1979.

King Tubby & Friends – Dub Gone Crazy, Blood & Fire BAFLP 002, 1994.

I would be really slacking off here if I didn’t post up some music by Earl Zero. Singer/songwriter Earl "Zero" Johnson played a crucial role in the roots age, releasing powerful cultural numbers whose dramatic lyrics were often combined with tough militant backings from the Soul Syndicate band. He created some of the most deeply conscious roots music to come out of Kingston in the mid-to-late 70s. When I saw Earl Zero in 1979, it was Satori in Berkeley. It wasn’t long after that that I had my name changed to Nothin’ in homage to that moment. Don’t really have a dub album by Earl, but on his 2010 release And God Said to Man half the tunes are dub, so if you want it all go buy it. I’m dubbin’ here. This was recorded in Spain by Roberto Sanchez for his A-Lone Production at A-Lone Ark Muzik Studio which he set up in 2002 with analog recording & mixes to focus on the late 70s sound of Jamaica. His studio (& now live performance) band Lone Ark Riddim Force have backed artists such as The Heptones & Big Youth. All live instrumentation here is provided by Lone Ark Riddim Forces creating a Channel One feel & style.

note of confusion: The above album, Chapter 2 was re-released as Dubwise with seven additional tracks. However, the order of the songs was changed, alternate versions of several of the songs were used, & several of the songs were incorrectly labeled. I therefore posted the original vinyl release in the original track order. I have included Side One & Two Virgin Frontline song lists from the original disc with the scans. These labels are from the very first UK press. It had mis-labelled stampers & the sides are reversed. Side One is really Side Two & vice versa. I have left the songs in the order they are labeled, so you can disregard the error or switch them if you want the true order. Have I confused you yet?

  2. Hi

    The mega downloads requires a decryption key?

    I wanted to sample Culture Rare Dubs and some other albums...

    1. The long list in the first comment is all the decryption codes for all the files. Just cut & paste where prompted.

      The decryption code for Culture is:

      I added Clutchy Hopkins after so that decryption code is in the next reply.

      Pol Pat commented that there was an error on Lee Perry Reel III so I re-upped it & added the new decryption code (above).

      That's about the same pattern for all postings. Single tracks just need the link - albums have the decryption code in the comments of that post.

  3. Hi, many thanks for all your shares and your good vibes. I found some dead links here:
    Prince Jammy
    Prince Far-I Chapter 1

    1. Thanks for reporting the dead links. They are re-upped & the codes are in the new list. Enjoy.

  4. Culture – Rare & Unreleased Dub

    1. I don't know what this comment means. I checked the decryption code & link, it was working fine, so ??? If you're having problems with MEGA, check the April 1, 2015 MEGA MESS post & comments for remedies. Thanks.

  5. Just a massive thank you for taking time to share all these. Big respect... the fidelity etc is excellent. Cheers.

  6. howdy...where can i get more of this good music? my email address is -mkuwodza@yahoo.co.uk
    or advise of any other site ..thanks for the vibes.

    1. As a huge fan of Dub, I have posted vast quantities of great Jamaican & Jamaican influenced music. On-U Sound, Wackies, etc. but you'll have to search, as my blog titles are kinda random.

      One place I get a lot of great JA music is rootsstone1.blogspot.com, good place to start.

  7. This is one of my favorite blogs keep up the good work thanks.

  8. Give thanks for the music you have introduced me to... i'm a big reggae fan and some of these dub albums i've never heard. Big up
