I have got BE THANKFUL by DONOVAN CARLOS on RANDY'S 17 NORTH PARADE. On a different CD, IMPACT!, the same song is credited to DONOVAN CARLESS. Crazy, crazy, mental shit.

that "shocks of mighty" album is genius, except some of the dub versions are mixed with the original tracks into one big long track. bit annoying if your making mixtapes!

ten years pass...

this is a fantastic record

i've been digging into reggae lately, after really taking a liking to the studio one soul jazz comps from this year and last year, and figuring out where to find sounds i like, how to steer clear of too-ploddy roots reggae.

and i've listened to some dub before, late 90s, early 00s, on the back of mad professor dubbing 'protection' probably, and i could like it some and understand the appeal -

but this record actually sounds like all the stuff you read about dub, the playing-the-studio stuff, instruments popping in and out of the soundfield, drum hits given their own little moments of presence - not just watery echoing and big bass. but what i like most is that you can hear all these little scraps that sound like early 70s-mid 70s playing, highlighted for their lyricism.
