CULTURE - PRODUCTION SOMETHING
When Production Something was released in 1998, it was Culture's first Showcase* album and it came out about 20 years too late. 

Okay, there was a problem. The nine extended tracks couldn't possibly be packed on one "LP", as vinyl albums were called in the late 1970's. For it was in that period, that the tracks were recorded and mixed. And released on 12 inch vinyl.

Many consider the 1970's to be the "Golden Years" of Culture. The music is stricktly Roots Rockers with Sly and Robbie laying down a solid foundation of drum and bass. Hard and militant, straight forward.

Lead Singer Joseph Hill chanting his conscious Rasta lyrics on top of the harmony vocals and Roots Music has driven many to apprecilove their work.

And yes, if only for that reason, many would buy this album already, as they should when they could.

However, Production Something takes this vibe to depths previously unavailable for the World Wide Roots and Culture Massive.

Because all tracks are extended!

This means that all of the nine classics come with a superb DUB version after the "vocal", as a mix with complete lyrics is called in Reggae Music. Some tracks even have a DJ chanting in the DUB ("Trod On")!

It is an extra experience for real, to hear this combination of the best that Reggae Music has to offer: Consciousness and Dubwise, track after track after track.

Over 70 minutes of pure Roots and Culture. Roots of Culture. Yes Rasta, this production is really something!

* = In Reggae, a SHOWCASE means that the album contains extended (12 inch) mixes.
