Horace Andy - In The Light Plus Dubs
Blood and Fire has been re-issuing old essential reggae music on CD for quite some time now. They did good releasing this album as well. Actually, this CD is a combination of two albums, the vocals and the dubs for Horace Andy's In the Light. Both albums are equally essential.

Horace's beautifull voice is known from his works with the Trip Hop group Massive Attack. On this CD you can hear where he is coming from: Horace Andy singing over classical roots reggae. Especially because every song gets accompanied by it's dub version, I think you will enjoy each and every one of these tracks. Real gems are "Government Land", "Leave Rasta" and "Rome".

As much as this album is Horace Andy, it is Prince Jammy as well. The dubs from In The Light are mixed by the Great Prince (now: King) Jammy, King Tubby's protegee. You can hear Tubby's pupil just before he started to have his own label. Killer dubs that certainly belongs in every dub-collector who takes him or herself serious. Jammy remixes the vocals of In the Light in such a manner, that they are absolutely different than the vocals. You can play these versions apart from the vocals, and they will stay interesting, also if you're not such a big dubhead like me.

Needless to say, as it is with every Blood and Fire release, this CD comes with very nice artwork and a lot of information written by Steve Barrow, who can be considered a living reggae encyclopedia.
