Re-release of one of the best, if not the best Studio One dub album ever.
Wicked riddims (the originals !), however in an other sequence comparing
to the first vinyl issue and renamed, thus a "new" disc after all. Riddim
selection: "Smile" Silvertones, "No No No" Dawn Penn, "Last Love" Termites,
"Moving away" Ken Boothe, "Ting a ling" Heptones, "Never let go" Slim Smith,
"Tonight" Keith & Tex....with the addition of some rare Jackie Mittoo and
Count Ossie (Iabingi) tracks. This is what I've been dreaming of for years:
impeccable Count Ossie dub mixes. The best by contest. Also included a
previously unreleased (?) track: "Bongo man" Count Ossie (?) and an overdub
of the "Thing a ling" riddim, probable Leslie Millner (keyboards) and Noel
Alphonso (drums and son of...), who are doing the overdubs for Studio One
Overdubs ? Or new ? I don't care, it simply sounds great. The riddim of "Tenement Yard" Eddie Constantine (12") and "True love" Sugar Minott (Showcase). To me this album is ten out of ten. What a pity those overdubs on the second take of "Thing a ling", otherwise it would be eleven out of ten !
