Errol Brown & The Revolutionaries: Dub Expression

In the second half of the 1970s, reggae fans in Europe and America turned their wheels completely and enthusiastically bought the weirdest music that had ever echoed over from Jamaica: Dub. The Jamaican producers wanted to use the hype of course to maximize their own rhythm return and sent their in-house back catalog straight through the echo chamber. Since the market was then relatively small and there was usually no time for marketing, most of the Dub-Albums only produced in limited editions and with cheap covers - which, however, did not disqualify them from being extremely sought-after collector's items today. "Dub Expression“ (Dub Store Records), produced by Sonja Pottinger in the Treasure Isle studio, recorded by the Revolutionaries and mixed by studio engineer Errol Brown, is one of these albums. It dates from 1978 and brings together some of the then current Treasure Isle versions of rhythms such as "Get in the Groove" / "Up Park Camp", "Ghetto Girl" / "Stay at Home" or "Heavy Rock" / "Jah." Jah See Them A Come ”. It has everything a classic 1970's Dub-Album makes it attractive: Well-known riddims, the most beautiful Jamaican analog sound, lots and lots of atmosphere and generally, the spirit of the good old days. I especially like it for its beautiful, rich Treasure Isle sound - relaxed mixed by in-house engineer Errol Brown.

I am a bit of a rhythm idiot. Apart from Stalag-Riddim, I don't know a single riddim by name. With "Dub Expression “there are many fine riddims there. I was particularly happy about “Super Tracks”. I only know this riddim from an old Yellowman cassette. Back then, my old buddy recorded the only two Yellowman albums that I even liked to hear from him. Otherwise, Yellowman was never really my thing, but the tune with the riddim of “Super Tracks” is one of my all-time favorites. Much has already been re-released, but the two best Yellowman discs remain lost on some old cassette of mine. I haven't even found his best things on Yellowman anthology discs. It's a shame, because I'm too lazy to look for the old tapes in the cellar. “Don't call me Daddy” is also such a great tune that comes to mind.
Well, it's not all evening yet and maybe a label will remember that will bring these records onto the market again, at least for me.

"Dub Expression “…. more of that …. I want to hear it again and again ………… lemmi
