A similar LP was issued in 2000 as HI FASHION DUB TOP FOURTEEN, with four additional tracks.

>>> Home | News | Albums | Books | Labels | Links | Rarities <<<

Hi Fashion Dub (One Step Beyond); Love Love (Higher Sight); Change A Dub (Can I Change My Mind); Dub You Can Feel (A Love I Can Feel); Rockers Hop (Jah Shakey) // Theme From Dub Room; Red Neck (Heptones) (Get In The Groove); Party Dub (Party Time); Come On Home (Won't You Come Home Now); Feel This Dub (Feel Good)

Probably the first of the dub albums to be released and certainly one of the most enjoyable. Four issues have been identified, available in (at least) six different sleeve variations. There is no matrix number as such on this edition, but JAMAICA RECORDING HI FASHION DUB is scratched into the run-off groove, indicating that this might be the earliest pressing. It was subsequently repressed on the rosette label.
