Format:Audio CD
Basically the 1979 "Cry Tuff Dub Encounter Part II" LP with 7 additional bonus tracks tacked onto the start; Prince Far I's "Dubwise" CD features some of the Jamaican deejay/producer's deepest and "dreadest" reggae recordings.

Of the bonus stuff, there are three Far I vocal tracks here amongst the otherwise entirely-instrumental dub sounds; and they rank as some of the best of his later work - dramatic proclamations of peace and Rastafarian preaching delivered in that inimitable booming, gravelly, half-spoken deejay style of his. The musical "riddims" are performed in fine early-dancehall style by the mighty Roots Radics band, who create earth-shakingly monumental grooves centered around metronomic, thudding beats and densely hypnotic, lyrical bass lines. The tracks have a melodic, "bright and breezy" vibe that is tastefully blended with sinewy rock guitar leads and hand-drum percussion.

The "Cry Tuff Dub Encounter II" album starts on this release at track 8, "NO MORE WAR DUB", which was in fact the closing song on the original LP. The track ordering of the original album has been re-arranged here; and, in the case of "BORNO DUB", replaced by a different alternate version of the same song. As near as you're going to get to experiencing the original 1979 release is if you program the CD tracks thusly: 16, 14, 15, 13, 9, 10, 11, 12, 8.

The "Cry Tuff" material is performed by a band that producer Far I christened The Arabs, comprised of legendary studio veterans like Sly & Robbie and guitarist Earl 'Chinna' Smith. The sonic mood of these tracks differs from the Roots Radics' ones; there is a darker, more brooding and mystical atmosphere, and the rhythms use subtler dynamics than the all-out pummeling groove of the earlier songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Fari compilation 17 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD
Michael Williams aka Prince Fari left an indelible mark on roots and dub reggae,his series of Tuff Dub Encounter albums a great legacy in the history of Jamaican music.This is worth getting alone for Ogun Dub taken from Tuff Dub Encounter 2-in my humble subjective opinion,the greatest dub track of all time,just listen for yourself-the recording techniques are mysterious and the atmosphere and sound quite unique.Essential!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thirteen Dubs, Three Toasts; ALL Prince Far I 30 Nov 2005
By Jasper - Published on
Format:Audio CD
The 1979 LP "Cry Tuff Encounter Pt. 2 - Prince Far I In Dub," mixed by none other than Prince Jammy, is the cornerstone of "Dubwise." ALL nine tracks from that classic set are here (although two are alternative mixes) along with four more excellent dubs, and three equally exceptional Prince Far I toasts. Cry Tuff 2 has long been hailed as one of the Prince's top dub sets, and not for nothing; menacing killer bass meets rich, deep, tripped-out dub featuring the likes of Sly & Robbie, Earl "Chinna" Smith, Bingy Bunny, Bongo Herman and Santa Davis. Some fine echoing horns come courtesy of Dirty Harry and Don Drummond Jr. (Vin Gordon), and some moody melodica (uncredited) snakes through several tracks. Far I's three toasts; the intensely rhythmic chants of "Throw Away Your Gun" and "Jah Do That," and his hypnotic recitation of "No More War" are easily among his best, and the rhythms are deep, funky, and tuff.

The only criticisms one could level at this set are the exclusion of two of the original "Cry Tuff" mixes (in favor of alt. versions), and the fact that a few tracks come from the 1980 Prince Far I LP "Showcase In A Suitcase," which we'd really like to hear in its complete form. Another thing is that some of the tunes are misnamed, though a quick trip to can help the listener sort this out. On the plus side, we have a few tracks that were previously unreleased and, again, EVERY track is killer. Sound quality is superb, with all the tracks having been digitally remastered from the original tapes. If you like heavy grooves, bad-ass toasts, or mind-bending dubs, this will be one of your favorite recordings. "Dubwise" is a ridiculous bargain - almost a full hour of dense, enveloping sounds, and there's not a weak moment on it. Essential Far I fi true.

5.0 out of 5 stars FAR I For Iver 21 Mar 2001
By Adjua Dubb - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Prince Far I one of the most overlooked and over deserved artists of the twentieth century, put out a great mass of music, his sturdy delivery is one of the most triumphant champion voices of this era. No one compares to the one Far I. Dubwize is yet another album full of great music, however, this album differs because its less of Far I's haunting chants, but more of his jolting dubs. Far I who was also a great producer developed some great dub music to the ites of creation. This album displays just how creative he was, and his dubs are distinctive and trance like. You'll love this one, R.I.P one Far I.
