this release harks back to his 70s work alongside king tubby, when analogue was still the dominant sound.

Tubby’s studio was mainly used for voicing tracks already recorded rhythms and cutting the dubs. So when Jammy wanted to cut a fresh rhythm with a band he mainly used Channel 1 Studio, which was the studio of choice at the time. these handpicked numbers focus on the work he carried out at those mighty Channel 1 studios. A fine selection of cuts, that when listened to show how so many hits from the time were from the great man’s stable. A wicked choice of tracks from one of Jamaica’s top producers - long may he reign.
