Dav I really love this lp. Dub at it’s finest.
Another gem of a release from the brilliant Pressure Sounds. Favorite track: A Message.

UNLIMITED FREAKOUT IS LOVE. Credited on its release in 1978 to backing band The Arabs, this is a crucial release from reggaes original voice of thunder.

Kristian Kosmik One of my favourite classic vinyl albums that I own as an original issue since the end of the seventies.
I'm so happy to have those songs in a first class digital quality that I can easily present to my reggae followers on the dancefloor.
On a reggae festival I presented it as the last song to honour the murdered Prince Far I. This dub was extremely well accepted, as it created a nearly holy atmosphere. Favorite track: Long Life.

about

Far I's rhythms, built with Jamaica's top session musicians, were always powerful and formed the backdrop to some of his most popular deejay hits. 'Cry Tuff Dub Chapter One' showcases the talents of Sly Dunbar and Flabba Holt as the rhythmic powerhouse, Crucial Tony on guitar (Tony was later to become one of Creation Rebel) and Doctor Pablo on melodica. It was from these early Far I records that the foundations for both Creation Rebel and the Dub Syndicate were laid.

Sadly Prince Far I was murdered in Kingston Jamaica in 1983, another victim of Kingston's political violence, allegedly for painting out political slogans painted on the wall outside his home. The strength and vitality of his music lives on and we are pleased to be able to re-release one of his finest dub albums.
