This show focuses on the sounds of Barrington Levy. The mix developed out of a earlier scattered set featuring the sounds of Scientist.
Scientist has really been the underlying theme and inspiration for these last five podcasts. Many of the dubs in the Linval Thompson set, several of the Viceroys cuts and most of the dubs in this Levy show were featuring the work of this mixing master.
For this show I start off with a Jah Thomas produced stormer call Tribute to Moa Ambessa. Then into a Gibbs delicacy, before opening up into a mix featuring dubs with Scientist and Jammy at the controls.
The era of dub featured on this show was one of my first introductions to dub. It features the Roots Radics band including drummer Santa Davis and bassie Flabba Holt. I had always wondered who was singing the original vocals and eventually I came across more of these Barrington Levy takes on these riddims.
