 The strongest album of Aswad's CBS period, a powerful roots-&-culture program entitled ‘New Chapter’, was followed in ‘82 by the strongest dub album of several that were produced during the group's career.

'A New Chapter of Dub' finds producer mikey dread digging deep into the traditional bag of dubwise production tricks, using echo, drop-out, & delay in ways that had been pioneered by King Tubby, but applying those effects in a wanton & sometimes exaggerated way in a manner more reminiscent of Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry. On ‘Flikkaflame,’ for example, the intensified snare drum echoes that Aswad & Campbell impose on the mix anticipate effects that would become commonplace in jungle mixes of the early '90s; the heavily flanged guitar on ‘Shining Dub,’ on the other hand, harks back explicitly to the glory days of the Black Ark.
