Mawamba Dub – “(Warrior) ” – [Badda Music]
This is a re-release of a 1978 collection of ???version??? or dub B-sides from the London label D Roy, founded by Delroy Witter. Only 1,000 were pressed, making it a highly sought after album. But fortunately for eBay-challenged, last November it was re-released by Badda Music. (The even rarer part 2 was re-released 2/07.)
The music, recorded and mixed in London with some players from Jamaica like Sly Dunbar, sounds more phlange-y and less stripped down than the deep Jamaican dub sounds but just as rich. Put it on and enjoy.
