More Info:

'Kamikazi Dub' by Prince Jammy is undoubtedly one of the most beloved albums by dub music lovers and a record to have in every self-respecting record collection. An album for any time of the day, or season, that never bores and indeed has aged very well always amazes and stimulates.Now re-released by JAMDUNG in limited edition LP from the original master tapes, available again at an affordable price, but hurry!Jamaican Dub music first appeared in the mid-70s under the guidance of the creative master mind, King Tubby. By the late 70s, two of his top co-workers, Scientist and Prince Jammy were ready to branch out on their own, and they did. Jammy's record came out first and that's why 'Kamikazi Dub' (1979) is often cited as the album that raised the bar for good. After it's release, many Jamaican producers aspired to create the same swirling psychedelic minimal sound that Jammy presented on these near perfect tracks.The musicianship on here is outstanding as well, with other Dub stars taking part such as Sly and Robbie on drums and bass, Augustus Pablo on keyboards, 'Deadly' Headley Bennett and Bobby Ellis on horns, as well as many others. Stunning cover artwork, which, like the album title and songs, is inspired by 1970s Kung Fu Movie.Tracklisting:A1. Throne of Blood (3;16)A2. Brothers of the Blade (3:29)A3. Shoalin Temple (2:50)A4.
