Rockers All Stars: Chanting Dub With The Help Of The Father

Almost exactly a year ago this album was re-released in France by Onlyroots Records. It was said at the time that they weren't interested in promo, their records would sell like that. Sure, in the inner circle of nerds, but the rest of the world doesn't notice anything. A sense that such an attitude is one of the reasons why reggae and Dub meanwhile settling on a separate, unnoticed comet is completely absent here. But records like these are simply too good for such a lack of cosmopolitanism! chanting Dub With The Help Of The Father previously stuck in a pale blue cover. Now the original Selassie photo artwork is highlighted in red, yellow and green. The original LP was released in 1978 with green lettering on Augustus Pablo's Rockers label and now costs a mid-three-digit amount. Reprints had red writing on a yellow label, but are also hard to find. Parallel to the Dubt came an ultra-rare, untitled, coverless deejay album by Prince Mohammad (ie George Nooks) on Hungry Town. With some copies, Prince became "Price", as if one had suspected that a four-digit amount would be called for the Deejay LP. the Dubs are based on tunes like Horace Andy's "New Broom", "Youths Of Today" and "Don't Let Problems Get You Down", Roman Stewart's "If I Had A Hammer" and Lacksley Castell's "Love In Your Heart". The new vinyl rumbles heartily in the empty grooves, but this is not the case with the loud ones mixed by Prince Jammy with King Tubby Dubs goes down. An All Killer No Filler Reissue still available from Only Roots. Maybe one day they'll take pity and re-issue the Prince Mohammad LP. And think about your own attitude towards public relations.

Now that I know a lot better who I'm dealing with here, namely Helmut Philipps, a reggae and DubConnoisseur of the first hour, who reggae and Dub Virus has infected many times more than me, I no longer really dare to comment here just from the gut. I'm reading the "Dub Conference” and I was blown away by how much you can immerse yourself in this immaterial matter. Great respect and thanks for that at this point.
The probability that the author of the book "Dub Conference” ( hello Helmut ;-) ) that could cause an upset stomach is actually a bit too big for me. But what should I do, I can only write it down as I feel it.
I find the flawless ones Dubs on “Chanting Dub“ Very good without exception. But I'm a newcomer who joined later, reggae and DubMusic not already in the awakening phase of reggae and Dub could experience. And so maybe it's an explanation why I do this Dubs also like all of them, but none of them have really become my all-time favourites. I have this Dubs felt like they've all been heard somewhere on scattered samplers without really being able to prove it. Whether I use the "Santic Dub' but in exactly the same ( same ) version, I couldn't answer with certainty. And the "Money Dub' sounds more than familiar to me, but I wouldn't find him at home immediately, if at all. Yeah, that's how it looks. There is no order and no system to recognize with me. Sometimes it annoys me (myself) a lot, but doing something about it would annoy me even more. The "Money Dub“ sounds so awesome to me here that I ask myself why I haven’t included it separately in my Dubbrain cortex saved.
Accordingly, I "potentiate" the effect of this one Dubs and project them onto the whole album. I agree, "No Fillers All Killers" but especially "Money Dub“. And of course the “Santic Dub“ ! I also find the fact that the (in my opinion wrongly so famous) high-pass filter is not used so blatantly, or not at all, extremely pleasant. Thanks to Prince Jammy!
I was already at the point in the book where this HighPassFilter was written extensively and yes, I have also read that King Tubby himself initially perceived this “effect” or this operating option as a “mistake” and not really at all was up for it. And that in connection with the Flying Cimbals ……….. well, I’ll come back to that elsewhere. In any case, the whole chapter was the purest revelation for me !!! Or was I reading too quickly and understood it in the way that suits me best?
And then there was the nice side story with Cedric Im Brooks and his saxophone, who probably got the “wrong engineer” because he asked him not to overdo it with his “blower”. Unfortunately, I can't yet assign the names of the individual engineers to every story, but I feel very confirmed that there were also engineers (at least one) who got on their nuts with a too complicated and too penetrating saxophone playing. And even a Jackie Mittoo had to be "admonished" with the words, "hey man ceep cool ... it's "only" reggae" ( freely but hopefully reproduced analogously ). And if I got the names mixed up here again, sorry!
And if I've written too much about "THE BOOK" here instead of contributing something creative to the review, I also apologize, but the book is simply the non plus ultra for me at the moment.

So long………………… lemmi

Been listening since the early 80s Dub and I'm always looking for beautiful old school Dub and that's exactly it - fantastic album - thank you very much, as is the brilliant Treasure Dub Album – recommendation from me Blackbeard: Strictly Dubwize…interesting disc

Well, the most important thing about this LP is missing:
This Dub Lp is not by Augustus Pablo! The producer is Everton da Silva, who was shot dead in NYC in 1979. Pablo is just a musician here. He has no rights to this LP. He wrote to me personally in the 80s and confirmed it again at our various meetings.
