Drum and bass reggae legends, Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespear, are the featured strongholds of this version of The Revolutionaries.
During the seventies the personnel changed quite often but these two were likely to be holding the session group together from Channel One Studios. The simple instrumental grooves are the studio concoction of one Jah Thomas who produced the assorted snap,crackle and pops echoing and reverbing out of this disc. It is spacey music indeed and with the titles of these tracks it is easy to see who the target market was. The repetitive grooves, with cracking cymbal shots has more appeal than to just stoners as it is a good reflection of the b-sides of the music that was coming out then.
Suprisngly the music holds up quite well and is a nice alternative to the more traditional roots reggae music. In any case, this is a good one for collectors of early roots reggae music.
Fronted by 2 of reggae's most venerable sidemen, drummer Sly Dunbar and bassist Robbie Shakespeare the Revolutionaries were a conglomeration of many of reggae's finest studio musicians, brought together with producers ranging from legends like King Tubby and Prince Jammy, to lesser known ones, LP create some of the finest dub of the late 70's.
His skills are legendary due in large part to the bass playing of Robbie. His grooves are intense, Collie - Sly & The Revolutionaries With Jah Thomas - Black Ash Dub (Vinyl, yet very supple, and perfectly augment Sly's grooves.
Robbie also plays great lead guitar on this lp, as well. With its 2 major club hits- "Marijuana" and "Cocain e ,", "Black Ash Dub" is a fine example of late 70's dub, and a wonderful addition to any fan of Sly and Robbie. Well worth the investment. Absolutely love this album and I'm all for people making a living off their music, but fifty dollars or more for a Collie - Sly & The Revolutionaries With Jah Thomas - Black Ash Dub (Vinyl minute album on cd is a tad pricey.
Luckily i have most of the tracks from other CDs, and the original vinyl. Absolutely brilliant LP by the masters, Sly and Robbie. I have many dub albums and compilations. But I must say LP is hands down my favorite dub album.
