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.

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!
