the CD "Jesus Dread", another
compilation of dubs from some crucial and
Strictly Rockers on this double CD filled
with music from the High Note Label. Now you
get the chance to hear the dubbing works of
Errol Brown. He is a guy who lets the music
remains to play a big part in the mix: you
will not hear that many effects as when you
would be listening to a King Tubby dub, or a
And the music is sweet, so very sweet!
Listen to a dubmix of
"Dreamland" by Marcia Griffiths,
for example. Several tracks from Treasure
Isle. Listening to it takes you back to that
wonderful era of ROCKERS.
Most of the tracks have the steppers
style of drum, with a kick on every count in
the measure. All the big names of rockers
are there: Sly, Robbie, Ansel Collins,
Deadly Headly, Dean Fraser, Micky Boo, you
just name them and they're on this CD.
I would say, this compilation is a nice
lesson in rockers. Because the mixes are not
too wild you can still discern the
instruments. It's not only a nice
introduction to dub, it is also a good way
to get acquainted with rockers!
