Title - 'Dubb Everlasting' / 'Dub Expresson'
Artist - Errol Brown

Mixed by renowned sound engineer, Errol Brown (not to be confused with the late Jamaican lead singer of Hot Chocolate) at Treasure Isle studio in Kingston, the albums that comprise this crucial collection have long since been widely regarded as being among the finest dub sets to see issue during the mid-to-late seventies.

Originally released in strictly limited numbers on Sonia Pottinger’s celebrated High Note label, at a time when dub was reaching its creative peak, Dubb Everlasting and Dub Expression feature the cream of Jamaica’s session players, including future Riddim Twins, Sly & Robbie.

Dubb Everlasting:
1. 'Babylon Dubbing'
2. 'Escape Affair'
3. 'Biblical Dub'
4. 'Easy Locks'
5. 'Living Strings'
6. 'Eva A Dub'
7. 'Marigunna Affair'
8. 'Dub Due'
9. 'Winning Dub'
10. '37 Orange Street'
11. 'Spinning Dub'

Dub Expressions:
1. 'The Gun Court Dub'
2. 'Ital Stew'
3. 'Super Tracks'
4. 'Dread at the Controls'
5. 'Ghetto Dub'
6. 'Ranking Marshall'
7. 'Down Town Thing'
8. 'Bond Street Rock'
9. 'Melodious Dub'
10. 'Mark Dis Yah Dub'
Making sure there's a proper shout out to those that should also be recognized, over some of Jamaican reggae record producer Sonia Pottinger's finer rhythms, Errol Brown lets rhythmically loose and produces one of the finest dub albums every created.

Bravely introducing the harmonica to his sound, something that up until that point had rarely been done, Brown knew what he was doing would divide his followers, but did it any way. Shoot, if you think hearing a harmonica is unexpected then just listen to 'Marigunna Affair', where the electric guitar comes forth chock full of distortion.

Indeed, both Dubb Everlasting and Dub Expressions are wondrous albums of their age. With the Lion obviously smiling broadly upon their creations, they are true prime roots dub, from the top to the very last drop. Majestically created sounds throughout, for my money, Errol Brown is really an unsung hero of dub.

With both albums on this essential celebration of dub unavailable in any format since their original release, long deprived fans can now at last enjoy some of the hardest and heaviest sounds ever to see issue, at a price that won’t burn a hole in their pockets.
