CLASSIC - Niney's first dub album!


Niney The Observer's first dub album Dubbing with the Observer (1975) was cut at King Tubby's Studio with Tubby himself reworking Niney's rhythms and adding his magic as only he could do!


Niney The Observer (b. Winston Holness, 1951 Montego Bay, Jamaica) by the early '70s had forged a successful working partnership with singer Dennis Brown, cutting some of his best songs and adding a more rootsy element to the singer's sound -- songs such as "Westbound Train," "No More Will I Roam," and "I Am the Conqueror," to name but a few. Niney also cut a hit for Ken Boothe ("Silver Words") and two other singers that he had grown up with, Max Romeo ("That Was Love") and Delroy Wilson ("Halfway Up the Stairs"). It was these tracks and a few other Dennis Brown-worked rhythms that Niney took to King Tubby's studio at 18 Drumilly Avenue, Kingston 11, with the intention to let Tubby remix and enhance the rhythms, Tubby-style.
