Phillip Fullwood - Words In Dub
Phillip Fullwood
Words In Dub
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Pressure Sounds)
18,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
The 100th release on Pressure Sounds is the brilliant set of I Mo Jah's ‘Rockers from the Land of Reggae’ and ‘Words in Dub’, as two single vinyl releases, and a double cd. This is the single vinyl release for "Words in Dub". It's surprising that these two albums have not been re-released before, as both albums are seriously sought after. A contemporary of Ras Michael & the Sons of Negus, Eric Donaldson and Freddie McKay, Philip Fullwood started out composing for Studio One and playing percussion for Burning Spear.Both "Rockers from the Land of Reggae" and "Words in Dub" were backed by Sly & Robbie, Leroy "Horsemouth" Wallace, Clive "Azul" Hunt, Bingy Bunny and Flabba Holt, among others."Words in Dub", the highly unique set, released in a stark hand-printed sleeve, comprised self-produced rhythm tracks and some donated by friends, such as ‘Africa Rock’, a dub of ‘See Dem Da’ (Jah Marcus Roots 7”) by Burning Spear, with member Rupert Wellington on lead vocals. The first side also featured dubs of Purple Lights’ ‘Pestilence’, fronted by the singer Bangie, and ‘Revolution’ by Jah Blue & The Originals, who included Winston Rodney’s brother. ‘Reorganize The Race (Marcus Say)’, with its dense layers of digital reverb in the intro, later features singing about ‘weeping and wailing’ also by Jah Blue & The Originals, though the vocal cut was never released. Several rhythms would later get a do-over by Phillip’s American-based group I-Mo-Jah, perhaps the most thrilling being ‘Jah Say Love’, rerecorded by I-Mo-Jah as ‘Peace & Love’. ‘Hotter Fire In Babylon’ is a dub of Burning Spear’s ‘Spear Burning’ (Spear 7”), and the album closes with ‘Bubbling’, a dub of ‘Maybe’ (Yah Congo 12”) recorded by Phillip’s long-time friend Eric DonaldsonThe original recordings were primarily laid at Channel One with Barnabas and Crucial Bunny at the mixing board, with ‘Hotter Fire In Babylon’ recorded at Randy’s by Chin Randy himself, and ‘Bubbling’ at Dynamic Studio. The final dub mixes were done at Channel One and also at the legendary Black Ark by Phillip Fullwood’s own hands.

The 100th release on Pressure Sounds is the brilliant set of I Mo Jah's ‘Rockers from the Land of Reggae’ and ‘Words in Dub’, as two single vinyl releases, and a double cd. This is the single vinyl LP "Rockers from the Land of Reggae". It's surprising that these two albums have not been re-released before, as both albums are seriously sought after. There will be 3 bonus tracks on each of the CDs. The albums come with full sleevenotes with excellent sound quality. The CD pack includes a full package with graphics and the usual high quality annotation and mastering. A contemporary of Ras Michael & the Sons of Negus, Eric Donaldson and Freddie McKay, Philip Fullwood started out composing for Studio One and playing percussion for Burning Spear. Both "Rockers from the Land of Reggae" and "Words in Dub" were backed by Sly & Robbie, Leroy "Horsemouth" Wallace, Clive "Azul" Hunt, Bingy Bunny and Flabba Holt, among others.The striking sleeve of "Rockers...", in black and white with green handwritten typography, told the story of Jamaica, with Arawaks overseeing the arrival of Christopher Columbus’ ship Santa Maria, whilst between two sound systems the dreads were dancing and smoking a spliff under a tree. The art was drawn by Magnus Johnstone, a painter and deejay who presented the radio show ‘Reggae Mukasa’ on WMBR, and would later become the foremost champion of the burgeoning hip hop scene in Boston.“When I made "Rockers from the Land of Reggae" I was taking about 500 to Jamaica and I was told I had to have a license to go through the customs. I got fed up and I just leave the album with them. They wanted me to get a license and all them things, and I said ‘Why I want a license to bring my own thing to Jamaica?’. They said no, so I leave them at customs. I don’t know what happened to them. Maybe they sell them. And that was the end of it. I give the rest of them to Chin Randy’s in Jamaica Queens to distribute.”And so "Rockers from the Land of Reggae" soon vanished into obscurity. By 1983 Phillip Fullwood had settled permanently in the US and virtually retired from music. Over the years, partly fuelled by its extreme rarity, the album’s reputation has grown immensely, and original copies now command a very high price. Phillip is thrilled that this reissue will now expose it to a wider audience.“Life happen that way. I got kids and grandkids. I’m just a small guy who was with Spear and just tried to do my thing, like everybody else in the entertainment biz. My occupation, my passport you know says entertainer. Wishing a t’ing, yunno.” The original recordings were primarily laid at Channel One with Barnabas and Crucial Bunny at the mixing board, with ‘Hotter Fire In Babylon’ recorded at Randy’s by Chin Randy himself, and ‘Bubbling’ at Dynamic Studio. The final dub mixes were done at Channel One and also at the legendary Black Ark by Phillip Fullwood’s own hands.

Phil Pratt & Friends
The War is on Dub Style
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Pressure Sounds)
19,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
Highly sought after dub album, that has not been available since its original release in the early 1980s. In the early 1980s, one London recording studio became the favoured hang-out for visiting Jamaican producers and British reggae musicians alike. Easy Street Studios in Bethnal Green had humble beginnings, but was soon pouring out an impressive run of hit tunes by artists like Sugar Minott, Winston Reedy, Alton Ellis and Barrington Levy. Founded by Eddy ‘Eddyman’ Williams, the studio soon recruited a team of local eastenders, like Dean ‘Joe 90’ Richards, Mike Stephenson, Jeff Chandler and Stuart Breed, who became known as the Easy Street Crew. Phil Pratt had an illustrious career in Jamaica stretching back to the rocksteady years of the 60s, scoring huge hits such as ‘My Heart Is Gone’ and ‘Artibella’, but by the 80s he was increasingly finishing his productions in London. Easy Street was a low budget studio with professional but fairly limited equipment – a Soundcraft TS24 mixing desk, a Roland RE301 Chorus Echo, an AKG BX5 reverb, and an MXR flanger/doubler – and a speedy way of working which suited the incoming rush of reggae producers. ‘The War Is On Dub Style’ is an album that typifies Phil’s working methods in those days, with the backing tracks recorded at Joe Gibbs’ Studio in Jamaica, and overdubs and mixing done in London. By the mid 80s Easy Street was scoring further successes with homegrown lovers’ rock and deejay tunes, and to support their breakthrough acts the Easy Street Crew started to go out on the road and into concert venues and dancehalls.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Crisp limited edition 45 of the classic roots lament from Philip Fullwood. ‘I Gave You My Word’ first floated in from St Ann's Bay around 1979, but it had in fact been recorded some time before then. A deep roots tune (arranged by Burning Spear) that’s improved with the passage of time. Not been repressed since the early 80s. Comes in a hand stamped bag.

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
A cry that is as soulful as reggae music ever got. Wounded and sore Philip Fullwood pleads ‘just not the way it should be, we all want to be free. This tune has bucket loads of vibe and bounces along with its spiritual message nailed down by a great rhythm track. Its only real problem is should have been longer! Co-written with Winston Rodney (Burning Spear). Comes in a hand stamped bag. Killer.

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
Classic Bunny Lee production that’s been unavailable since it was first pressed on the Justice label. Cornel Campbel’s rocking version of William DeVaughn’s 1974 hit is perfectly suited to Cornel Campbell’s sweet falsetto. Comes with a heavy Tubbys piece on the flipside, in a hand stamped bag.

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
A prodigy of the Alpha boys school, Owen Gray delivers a heartfelt roots vocal on a rhythm most likely supplied by Sly Dunbar and Lloyd Parks. This is a top tune and Phil Pratt's production is sympathetic to Owen Grays voice. The rhythm was remixed at London’s Easy street studio and used on the ‘War is on dub style’ set. There is a distinct Roots Radics feel to the rhythm, and the veteran Owen Gray handles it perfectly. A classic that is well worthy of being re-issued: ‘Why did you kill your brother for a dollar’ as appropriate now as it was when it was released. Bobby Kalphat makes an appearance on melodica in the second half of the track. Comes in a Pressure Sounds house bag.

Release:1978 / UK – Reissue
Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
A fierce reflection on Kingston’s downtown strife from Jacob Miller. Miller was a downtown ghetto dweller who had managed to work himself into the bohemian uptown scene. Junior Delgado had apparently come to a session as Kingston’s ghetto was on fire and imbued a Miller / Inner Circle recording session with a tale of apocalyptic doom from downtown. Crackling gunfire then ‘Uptown downtown all around town fire fire’ sings Miller as the Lewis Brothers rhythm section kicks in. Pressed by Tommy Cowans on the Arab imprint. Comes in a hand stamped bag with a sparse dub version on the flipside

Super Star-Disco Rockers
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Pressure Sounds)
19,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
First re-press since its original release. When The Skatalites splintered after Don Drummond’s arrest for murder, McCook led The Supersonics for Duke Reid in the rocksteady and early reggae years, before becoming the pre-eminent horns arranger of the roots era. Having already fallen under the spell of John Coltrane’s free jazz, Tommy had found a deeper meditational mood in the percussive rhythms of Count Ossie’s Rastafarian drummers, and he brought this spiritual dimension into the militant rockers sound of the late 1970s. McCook recorded extensively for Bunny Lee, and ‘Super Star Disco Rockers’, released in 1977, is a strong showcase for his meditational style of playing. The track ‘Lamb’s Bread Herb’, a reworked version of Yabby You’s ‘Death Trap’ with an overdubbed ‘steppers’ drum pattern, is a mystical highlight. Bunny Lee: “When Tommy join up with Bobby Ellis on trumpet, that is when he develop what we call his ‘far east’ sound. And especially when he play flute like on ‘Death Trap’ it give it that ‘far east’ sound. Or sometimes Tommy play clarinet for a different flavour. But mostly he play the tenor sax with that deeper, lower tone, like on ‘Tommy’s Rocking Vibration’ – hear that big horn there!” Other tracks include two cuts of Frankie Jones tunes, (‘African Jumpers’ and ‘The Night Rose Of Sherron’, both popular cuts with Fatman’s sound system) and instrumental versions of Johnny Clarke and Cornell Campbell songs. Several tunes feature the higher alto sax of Lennox Brown alongside Tommy’s tenor, and two tracks actually feature Lennox Brown alone. ‘Super Star Disco Rockers’, originally released on Dynamic Sounds’ Weed Beat label, was overdubbed and mixed at King Tubby’s Studio, where Bunny would line up the horns players in a spirit of healthy competition. Featuring, among others: Sly & Robbie, Earl "Chinna" Smith, Tony Chin, Ansell Collins, Ossie Hibbert, Bobby Ellis & Lennox Brown.
