    Dennis Bovell Presents 4th Street OrchestraScientific, Higher Ranking Dubb / Yuh Learn!EMI

    As founder member and leader of UK reggae pioneers Matumbi, Dennis Bovell is truly part of UK reggae royalty. Formed in the early 70's, Matumbi and Bovell quickly installed themselves at the front of the UK scene, and during his time with Matumbi, but under the guise of the 4th Street Orchestra, he recorded four classic soundsystem albums. He intended these to appear as Jamaican imports, a trick he pulled off with ease. This particular two-albums-on-one-CD includes "Scientific, Higher Ranking Dubb" and "Yuh Learn!", the last two 4th St Orchestra albums recorded. When these albums exploded at the back end of the 1970s they made their mark instantly. Loved equally by the small house party sized system crews and the bigger sound men the albums simply worked balancing the authenticity required by soundsystem tunes with the commerciality so as not to leave the prospective album buyers running for cover.

    Keith HudsonPick A DubVP Records

    Keith Hudson’s Pick A Dub is a classic album by many standards; released in 1974, the session features performances from reggae legends Augustus Pablo, Big Youth and Carlton and Aston Barrett. The 1994 re-issue on the Blood & Fire label introduced a new generation to its" austere sonic qualities" and genre defining techniques. This newly re-mastered edition includes eight vocal cuts of the featured dubs including two previously unreleased tracks.
    Pick A Dub showcased the enduring strength and pivitol importance of the rhythm to the development of reggae music. Keith Hudson’s complete mastery of the genre and the unqualified praise that followed its release was fully justified.
    The album’s austere sonic qualities are awe inspiring, the superb rhythms are given full rein, unencumbered by extra effects and studio trickery. The overall effect is as mesmerizing now as it was over forty years ago. - Jon Savage: England’s Dreaming

          Ranking DreadGirls FiestaHot Milk

          Ranking Dread was as much of a myth and enigma as he was a music man and badman. But today he remains the connoisseur’s Dee Jay, admired for his slick style and delivery and compared to other noteworthy DJ’s of the time, can be seen as crucially under-recorded, having only released 4 albums and a handful of singles in his recording career.  Girls Fiesta is Ranking Dread’s first album, originally released in 1978 and contains some tough Linval Thompson rhythms taken from various Linval productions, most notably his "Love Is The Question” album.   This album stands at the crossroads of the Dee Jay phenomenon linking the eras between the might of I Roy and U Roy and the Dancehalls ruled by the Roots Radics rhythms. This is Rub A Dub at its finest.  After the early 80’s Dread’s recording career faded away as he got swept away into a serious life of crime, see the sleeve notes for an eye opening account of Dread’s life.   This is the first ever reissue of Girls Fiesta on LP and is licensed directly from Linval Thompson.  Rhythms laid down at Channel One Studios by Sly & Robbie (amongst others) and Dread’s material voiced at Chalk Farm Studios Camden, engineered by Sid Bucknor.
