5.0 out of 5 stars More Treasure Isle in dub... 7 May 2011
Format:Audio CD
Vintage Jamaican 'rock steady' rhythms produced by Duke Reid circa 1966-68;dusted off and dubbed-up by his nephew Errol Brown sometime in the 70's. Reid's legacy in the Jamaican music industry is legendary: after waging an often violent turf war with Coxsone Dodd's Studio 1 label during the ska era, Reid's Treasure Isle studio emerged as the definitive 'hit-maker' during the island's 'rock steady' period - the direct musical precursor to reggae that favoured US soul inspired harmonies and melodies and majestic, laid-back beats.

Pleasingly, this set of dub versions features tracks stripped almost entirely of the original vocals. I say 'pleasingly' because as much as I am enamoured of the wonderful music, the tendency at the time for placing mundane 'relationship' and 'love' lyrics on them is far less appealing. On "Pleasure Dub" the tremendous musical performances and songwriting skills of Tommy McCook and The Supersonics band is allowed the chance to shine brightly - sublime, swinging, skanking grooves led by melodic and lyrical bass riffs and bolstered by wonderful horn cadences and percussive guitar picking.

Errol Brown's dub techniques throughout are subtle but effective; rather than using the 'melodies dropped in and out' method most contemporary mixers were fond of, Brown leaves pretty much all of the instrumentation intact, and liberally seasons them with effects: 'splashing' echo applied to every third crashing drum beat and harmonic brass, piano and guitar lines dripping in ethereal 'gated reverb'. The most startling effects are used on the remaining fragments of vocal lines that surface momentarily: random syllables trapped in time and space echoing and swirling surreally through the mix.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly Pleasurable 2 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is a BRILLIANT dub album. In my top 10 amongst 100's. The notes say mixed by Duke Reid's nephew, Errol Brown, in the early 70's, & well done to him, & Tommy McCook & the Supersonics for a great album. Thanks to the great Duke Reid of course. The original tunes are all recognisable, if you're a fan of Jamaican music you'll know them all, but these dubs are sensational. Its got a mellow vibe compared to much dub from later in the 70's & early in the 80's, but these dubs are truly musically beautiful, the rhythms are killer & the sound quality is good. I understand Errol Brown made 3 dub albums of Treasure Isle rhythms, what a shame it was only 3! The other two, Treasure Isle in Dub Vols 1 & 2 are great as well. All three are highly recommended.
