Second of a six part series of REAL Jamaican dub from Joe Gibbs extra classic dub series originally released in the late1970's and early 80's as clunking great big plastic records shipped over from Jamaica packed in old straw, or so it seemed with so much scratch and hiss. They got rid of all that by re-mastering these CDs and not a bad effort really. Does sound a little ruff in places but it's a lot better than my old records. For all it's faults the music shines through in jubilant fashion. This Dub series showcased the top rhythms coming out of Joe Gibbs studio throughout the most inventive period in Reggae music, from around 1975 and 1980. This epic dub series improved strongly from chapter one to chapter three before dropping off after chapter four. If you reckon you only need one then this one or chapter three are the best. Buy any one chapter and you'll end up buying the whole book! Give your ears a surprise with the dubbed out sound of Joe Gibbs and Errol Thompson - The Mighty Two

African Dub Chapter Two 14 Jun 2008
By Stuart Jefferson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Approximately 37 min. Remasterd sound. This is the second in a series of releases from the 17 North Parade label. Like the first,this set pays dues to Randy's Record Mart(and studio),which was important in Jamaica in the 1960's and 1970's. The sound on these tracks is about as good as they can be-everything is separated and clean. The musicians on these tracks consist primarily of Joe Gibbs group,which in reality are members of Soul Syndicate and Lloyd Parks group. Other well-known names crop up like Sly Dunbar and Tommy McCook and Dean Fraser. This set was mixed by the great but relatively unknown Errol Thompson. Thompson should be as well-known as Lee Perry and other producers and mixers of the time.

The original songs range from groups like The Melodians to The Wailers,to an unidentified cut. As all dub music,the original tunes are stripped of their vocals and remixed in the studio,sometimes not even resembling the original. This is why dub music continues to have so many fans all over the world. Take a goog song,strip it down,and add a few effects to get "that" sound.

The actual era of true dub music lasted a relatively short time. The music on this album was made in the era when dub was very popular in the dancehalls and wherever people gathered to have a good time. It's a fine continuation in this series,and anyone who likes authentic dub will like this.
