The Mighty Aba-Shanti-I Heavy Sound System Pressure! Live 91/92?

Playing tracks by

Aba Shanti I.

The heaviest dub sound system mix. Be warned this will uplift you and destroy your speaker system.
Play loud and enjoy.
Not sure if this has been digitized before. I recorded the original cassette today.
You will enjoy this.
Big and heavy heavy heavy filled with bleeps, echo, reverb, speaker rumbling bass and rewinds plus MC-ing this is a recording to die for.

Words about this up on my website

Big love



Greetings Mike ... wow, this is a great find. It does sound like it's early 90's, Aba sounds so young ! I used to go to the House of Roots, Vauxhall, every Sunday 91-93, legendary sessions were had there. Aba would use a double tape deck to record each session hence why I think this is such great quality, and one can't hear the crowd. I'm a photographer and took many pictures there, which I'm turning into a book, Aba came to mine the other day and loves the memories. I'm wondering could I use some of this in my Kickstarter intro film, it's perfect. Thank you again sir.

Hi Mark. Thanks for the info on the tape deck recording. Makes sense as you're very right there's no crowd noise like you hear on most of the others. That's amazing about the book, I will be very interested to see what you come up with. Of course use the links by all means. It's here to share that wonderful sound of Aba Shanti. If you remember, let me know on here when you set up the kickstarter.
You probably saw it but this link here gives a little info to where the cassette came from
Wishing you all the best with the project and thanks for dropping me a line. All the best..... Mike
