ON THE OTHER SIDE OF DUB1
Lone Ranger (1977)

Studio One SOL 5454
matrix: SOL 1127

Noah In The Ark (Why Oh Why); Apprentice Dentist (The Thing); Quarter LB. Ishen (Pick Up The Pieces); Every Thing She Want (The Drifter); Natty Dread On The Go // Where Eagles Dwells; Dentist Dub; Collie Rock; Dub A Natty Dread; Roots Style

It looks like it should be a very straightforward concept - on side A we get toasting vocals (over a selection of familiar, and not so familiar rhythms), and on the other side we get the dubs. Things get more complicated, however, because the versions don't quite match up with the vocals (tracks 9 and 10 are in the wrong order), and the Studio One cut of The Drifter doesn't seem to have had an official release (you can hear an unidentified vocalist in the background of the dub version). Also, Natty Dread On The Go / Dub A Natty Dread seems to be an original rhythm.

Classic album, though, and fully deserving of Heartbeat's attention on subsequent reissues.

Superb 17 track compilation of Lone Ranger dee-jay performances (plus complementary dub versions) based on the seminal Studio One album ON THE OTHER SIDE OF DUB, from the early 1980s dancehall era. Everything She Want / Roots Style has been omitted, but instead we get seven additional tracks - The Answer / Dub Is The Answer, Screw Gone A North Coast / Dub Gone A North Coast, Tribute To Marley / Tribute To Marley Version, and an extended mix of Keep On Coming A The Dance on the Heavenless rhythm. It comes in an attractive slip case together with informative sleeve notes by Chris Wilson.
