Page One - Rock A Dub - Vinyl LP



Format: LP

Re-release of the classic 1970's Dub album on 180 gram vinyl and CD, released on the revitalised Burning Sounds imprint launching in September.

Having started producing his own tunes during his time working as an engineer at KG records in the 60s, Winston Holness, better known as Niney The Observer, later replaced Lee 'Scratch' Perry as Joe Gibbs chief sound engineer. Inspired by Lee Perry's nickname 'The Upsetter' he adopted "˜The Observer' as an alias and started releasing music on his new Observer label. The first major hit was 'Blood & Fire' in 1970 which made him one of Jamaica's most sought after producers. He continued to record his own music whilst working with reggae legends such as The Heptones, Gregory Isaacs, I-Roy and Dillinger.

This is another fine Dub album from Niney The Observer, also known as Page One, featuring riddims possibly mixed at King Tubbys Studio in Jamaica.
