MELLOW DUB
Dub Specialist (1974)

Coxsone
matrix: FCD 7725

Tricky (Just Say Who); In The Park (Where Do The Children Play); Lion Niah (Pretty Looks Isn't All); Inspector Rober; Bush Tea (You Should Have Known); (untitled); Cry To Me Version (Cry To Me) // Time (If I Only Had Time); Creation (Creation Rebel); Rocking Version (Why); Roaring Reggae (Pick Up The Pieces); Tomorrow Is Over (Rougher Yet); Mellow Dub (Seems I'm Losing You)

Original Jamaican issue in screenprint sleeve. It comes in a variety of subtly different sleeve designs, but all pressings share the same matrix number. There is an untitled track on Side 1. ((Click sleeve to enlarge.))

Probably the fourth of the Studio One dub series to be released. An excellent selection of mainly heavy reggae rhythms, but also including a version of the Wailers' ska classic, Cry To Me.

(Thanks to Cyrille Fouques for all sleeve illustrations.)
