Ossie Hibbert / Ossie Allstars – Leggo Dub (2005)

leggoA
“Rare dub reggae emerges from the vaults in the shape of this late-1970s set produced by one of Jamaica’s lesser-known talents, Ossie Hibbert. Hibbert, who was primarily an engineer and keyboardist, favors a drum-heavy mix (courtesy of the legendary Sly Dunbar) laced with horns. He incorporates a few of the sonic eccentricities, like wailing babies and train whistles, popular with better-known figures like Lee Perry on a variety of vintage rhythms, notably Gregory Isaacs’ ‘I’m All Right’ and Dillinger’s ‘Take a Dip.’ Casually elegant, Hibbert provides a naturalistic soundstage against which the ace session band the Revolutionaries skank their stuff, smooth and easy.”
