Tommy Mccook And the Supersonics Pleasure Dub
Surely the classic reggae reissues have got to be getting fewer and further between, as niche labels continue to suffer adverse economic conditions and blogs host illegal vinyl rips with ease. But, God bless 'em, Pressure Sounds still has more love to give. Pleasure Dub is the never reissued volume three of the well-known Treasure Dub set. Treasure Isle was second only to Studio One in Jamaica in the '60s. Occasionally it ruled the nation, as with their groundbreaking records of the early '70s, which documented the birth of dub and the commercial breakthrough of DJing. It's the former innovation that is so lovingly on display here, as latter day owner Errol Brown reworks "The Tide Is High" and other eternal riddims into warm, analog pools of echo. It's a cliché but this is a definitive summertime album for when you're on the beach having a party. (Pressure Sounds)
