Bebo Phillips, aka Beswick Phillips, aka Bebo produced some nice albums during the first half of the eighties: Al Campbell - Bad Boy (1984), Carlton Livingston - Rumours (1984), Carlton Livingston - Soweto (1981) and Peter Metro & Friends - Dedicated To You (1984). Most of his stuff got released on the UK based label CSA.

The dub album 'Bebo In Dub Style' hit the streets in 1985 and is now reissued by Taffari Records. Although it's called 'Dub' we would rather call it an instrumental riddim set. There's no gimmickry, sound effects or what so ever. It's no negative thing, the riddims are nice and the musicians are in good shape. It's hard to find out what riddims are used. Hot Stuff is the riddim for Sugar Minott's 'Uptown Girl', a massive 1983 hit. Stop Signal uses the bassline of the Heptones 'Party Time' riddim. That's as far as we could get with our research.
