Last year they got us Frightnrs surprised with their retro rock steady album "Nothing More to Say". Now they are pushing too "More to Say Versions" (Daptone Records) that Dub-Pendant after. Dub-Pendant? The band from Queens uses the term “Versions” very modestly, which actually hits the spot very well, because producer Victor “Ticklah” Axelrod went to work here extremely carefully - exactly as one would expect from the original Treasure Isle or Studio One-Dub-Knows releases. Since those recordings were made on a few tracks, they were virtuoso Dub-Effects not possible anyway. Ticklah took this into account and mostly limited himself to switching off the vocals, reducing it to drum & bass and of course to reverb effects. Only if you listen carefully will you notice other loving details, such as z. B. the very faint shining through of the vocal track, as was inevitable in the past with tape recordings. In both the original and the versions, we are not dealing with an eclectic quote, but with pure retro productions. This is not about refraction and reinterpretation, but about reproduction and homage. I still like it.
