Back in stock is the Kevin Metcalfe re-mastered dub classic from 1977 in the original picture sleeve! - "African Dub Chapter Two" has 12 tracks of excellent dub versions on riddims from the Treasure Isle and Studio One Rocksteady-era, on "Hypocrites" (Bob Marley & The Wailers) and on "Uptown Top Ranking" (Althea & Donna) with featured musicians Carlton "Santa" Davis, Leroy "Horsemouth" Wallace, George "Fully" Fulwood, Tony Chin, Richard "Dirty Harry" Hall, Tommy McCook, Bobby Ellis, plus Errol Thompson aka Errol T at the mixing desk.
The Joe Gibbs "African Dub" records are considered to be among the first and best dub albums ever recorded. The series, recorded between 1972 and 1978 feature the Joe Gibbs house band aka The Professionals. The innovation of sound effects, echo and delay triggered by Gibbs and engineer Errol Thompson (known as The Mighty Two) is what set the mold and created the sub-genre. Chapter Two of the series is one of the proofs for timeless musical popularity and iconic artwork.
