Joe White – Jah Jah Dub (1975)

“… This album presents some nice dub cuts from Harry Johnson’s studio. It brings together the best tracks from three very hard to find dub albums from the seventies; Joe White – Jah Jah dub (Roosevelt), Cultural Dub (Harry J) and Sylvan Morris – Morris on dub (Jay wax). The sound quality from this 180 grams vinyl album is splendid! Most tracks come straight from master tape and are technically well cleaned and transferred. As a master sound engineer Sylvan Morris will be very satisfied! In all the tracks you can hear the sound quality of Harry J`s Studio and Sylvan Morris` approach. Technically and musically the balance in the music is great. The dubs may sound a bit less raw than some of the other studio`s that marked the sound of Jamaican dub music in the seventies, but they are certainly not less attractive. You can hear the work of a top quality sound engineer. What also makes this set attractive is that most versions are recognizable and well known riddims.”
