Fullwood, Phillip – “Words in Dub” – [Pressure Sounds]
Brian Damage 12/8/2022 12-inch, Reggae
This is a reissue of the incredibly rare 1979 Phillip Fullwood record. Mr. Fullwood originally wrote, sang, and played percussion with Burning Spear in the 70s.
This is a collection of tracks that had been recorded at pickup sessions through the mid- to late 70s, with musicians like Sly and Robbie, Horsemouth Wallace, Azul Hunt, Family Man Barrett, and Bingy Bunny Lamont. Some of the rhythm tracks were self-produced and some were donated by friends. Phillip showed up with boxes of tapes under his arm to Lee Perry’s Black Ark studio one day to do the dubs, on a day when Scratch was “acting crazy,” so he sat down at the console and did all the dubs himself.
The tracks themselves are representative of the era, full of the warm analog sounds of the 70s, and as mixed on Scratch’s rig? Fantastic.
This is essential, and a great addition to anyone’s reggae library.

Ras Babo says
Fully Fullwood was the bass player for Peter Tosh for many years as well. Looking forward to these dubs.
Ras Babo says
I was wrong. Fully Fullwood is a different person.. These are great dubs, nonetheless.
