ask me why it took such a long time before
there was a release of the dubs from these
tracks used by the vocal harmony group
Culture, I just don't know.
Maybe more people like dubwize in this
time, but it is a shame that only in the
90's this CD was released. 15 Dub shots from
these classic reggae songs we all know:
Behold, Holy Mt. Zion and many more.
Although released in the nineties, these
dubs are old-skool. Roots reggae dubs in the
style of the Goldmine Dub from the
Revolutionaries (guess who laid down the
riddims on this album) and Dub over dub.
Yes, you wanted this album 20 years ago! It
sounds like all the work is done in the
seventies, when you listen to this record,
you almost think you are back in that time
when Rockers hit Jamaica.
Most of the tracks on this album are hard
steppers, but not all. You' also get a good
listen to what the percussionist plays, as
this gets overheard a lot of times in the
vocals (original mix with the singers).
When you love the vocals, you will love
these versions as well. Culture's reggae is
essential like Burning Spear and Israel
Vibration. Only they have had their dubwize
releases, now listen to the essential
Culture in Dub!
