(CD/LP) Pressure Sounds PSCD0065/PSLP0065, 2009-09-19

Sound System International… this Clancy Eccles produced dub set is so incredibly obscure that it has even the most serious collectors scratching their heads. The set features ten early King Tubby's deconstructions of a selection of Dynamites rhythms produced by Clancy Eccles where Tubbs spins the tunes around and comes up with something very, very special. Anyone who really wants to now what King Tubby's mixing style was all about need look no further as he takes on these straight forward reggae songs turns them upside down, inside out and then takes them on to somewhere completely different...

Press Release :
'Sound System International'… this Clancy Eccles produced dub set is so incredibly obscure that it has even the most serious collectors scratching their heads. The set features ten early King Tubby's deconstructions of a selection of Dynamites rhythms produced by Clancy Eccles where Tubbs spins the tunes around and comes up with something very, very special. Anyone who really wants to now what King Tubby's mixing style was all about need look no further as he takes on these straight forward reggae songs turns them upside down, inside out and then takes them on to somewhere completely different...

The ten track vinyl album remains the same as the incredibly rare original release and includes Tubby's dubs to Lord Creator's evocative 'Kingston Town', The Dynamites' beautiful 'Red Moon' and King Stitt & Andy Capp's 'Herb Man'. The CD echoes the origins of dub in Kingston's sound systems and comes with five bonus tracks including 'Phantom' Lynford 'Andy Capp' Anderson's next cut to 'Herb Man' one of the earliest ever dub mixes; two outings from 'The Ugly One' foundation deejay King Stitt including his riposte to U Roy"You say you rule the nation with version…" entitled 'King Of Kings' and the incredible 'Dance Beat' where Stitt and Clancy discuss the early days and characters of the sound system scene and finishing off with The Dynamites' stirring 'Tribute To Drumbago'.

Originally released in a plain white cover rubber stamped with only the title and track listing the set now comes totally re-mastered and replete with superb graphics, stunning contemporary photographs of King Tubby and extensive sleeve notes detailing the origins of the dub and deejay phenomenon. We at Pressure Sounds were thrilled to be able to negotiate the release of this awesome rarity where, for once, the hyperbole is all for real. But you don't have to believe us… just give it a listen and see and hear for yourself!
