Press Release :
Duke Reid died from cancer in 1974 and his nephew, Errol Brown, who had been a junior engineer at Treasure Isle and who would go on to become one of the key engineers at Bob Marley's Tuff Gong Studio, took over the studio controls. He mixed three dub albums at Treasure Isle that dressed down and dubbed up some of the best of the Bond Street catalogue. Snatches of the original vocals were woven in and out of mixes that sound as fresh and as vital today as they did when they were first released… both in their original sixties incarnations and their seventies counteractions. 'Treasure Dub Volume One' and 'Treasure Dub Volume Two' have been available in various incarnations ever since. However, 'Pleasure Dub', the best of the set featuring Errol Brown's cuts to rock steady classics such as 'The Right Track' by Phyllis Dillon, 'The Tide Is High' and 'Riding On A High & Windy Way' from The Paragons and 'Things You Say You Love' by The Jamaicans has never been re-pressed since its initial release. 'Pleasure Dub' is a record we have wanted to release for a long, long time and we are all delighted to be able to finally add a Treasure Isle album to the Pressure Sounds catalogue.

We have retained the original artwork for the front cover and added an array of fabulous Treasure Isle photographs and graphics throughout the CD booklet assembled by our usual team of designers. Together with detailed sleeve notes of the Treasure Isle story that put the music into its proper context and music re-mastered to our usual exacting standards this makes for an exciting release that you will need in you your collection. This classic album takes you straight to the real roots of the music… back to Bond Street and those very first versions. The Lp will have the same tracklisting as the original album. The cd will have added bonus tracks.
