Press Release :
Before there was Dub there was Version. On the flip side of Jamaican singles were instrumental versions of the A side. At first they were called Versions - mostly the music with snatches of vocals sometimes used a cappella. These flip sides became as important as the vocal release, and soon a new phenomenon known as Dub was born. Heavily remixed versions of the vocals, filled with echoes and radical equalization, drove the fans wild. Studio One, with its catalog of top hits, was able to provide this growing craze with its own brand of exciting Versions and Dubs.

'Version Dread' collects 18 of some of the most sought after B sides taken from Studio One 45s released between the years of 1966 to 1982. There are straight versions like "Please Be True Version" and "Pick Up Version" to the more modern dub effects found on "Armagideon Version" and "Why Oh Why Version." Never collected before, and long in demand by fans and collectors, the tracks on Version Dread are total excitement. Filled with top Studio One rhythms, this collection is essential.

All tracks previously unreleased on CD or album.
