5.0 out of 5 stars Boss Man's Holiday (For 35 Years?), 21 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Boss Mans Dub: The Lost 1979 Dub Album (Audio CD)
i know some people operate on 'kingston time', but it's pretty careless to mislay such a vital piece of work for nigh on 35 years. however, situation rectified by the good people at 'hot milk'records, who are building an impressive catalogue based on discoveries such as this and others. this is the first official release of 'boss man's dub', previously only circulated as a white label, thus, more or less robbing the genre of a recording that is a great example of dubbing at the end of the 70s, progressing from roots into dancehall. i think it will be viewed in the future as one of linval thompson's major works, due to both the nature of the times, and the sheer excellence of the content.
it's a very complete work, and one (after many listens), that seems to be over much too soon, such is the compelling, drawing power of the material. the whole is bolstered by two extra tracks which end the album. these appear to be from the same times, and the second of these, 'roots version', is a five and a half minute belter. for a dub album, a theme of the upbeat runs the whole length of the record, and this is accentuated by some wonderfully positive horns, which weave in and out of things. although the product of many influences and techniques, it has a very individual feel to it, and is a vital element, i feel, in the history of dub music. perhaps due to being on the cusp of the oncoming dancehall, and at the tail end of the roots sound, it is a kind of hybrid, and this increases the importance of this recording as a valuable 'document'?
also to be enjoyed as the thoroughly and skillfully assembled piece of work that it is.

This CD is a real piece of quality. The whole CD is great but the closing track is so good that if the rest were not good it would still have been worth the money . As it is the Whole album is top dub and the last track Roots Version is majestic and a nice long veresion too. Hesitate no more, proceed to the checkout NOW!
