brotherhood of dub


Coming from the 2006 Auralux issue of "Barrington Levy In Dub (The Lost Mixes From King Tubby's Studio)"; itself a 'lost' counterpart to the 1980 Greensleeves UK release, "The Big Showdown", featuring five mixes by Jah Thomas.

The album was simultaneously issued on The Jah Guidance label in Jamaica as "
Shaolin Temple" with virtually identical sleeve design and track listing, but showcasing ten different mixes; engineered and mixed by Maxie and Scientist at King tubby's Home Town Hi-Fi with Roots Radics providing backing. Produced by Junjo Lawes.

Hats off to NØ.

The Roots Radics:
Santa Davis: drums;
Flabba Holt: bass;

So. Let it rip. And keep on dubbing.

Thanks, Big Ed.

Flabba Holt is the boss.

Less than 3 hours to go here, and sounding more like a Johnny Cash song every second.

Happy New Year as it enfolds.
