Another in the string of albums that Scientist made for Greensleeves repressed with the original vocal versions! This one is mostly Barrington Levy dubs from his big albums for Junjo ("Robin Hood") and Linval Thompson ("Poor Man Style"). As most people like, Scientist scatters some Barrington warbling, uses lots of echoes and rides the dub like nobody else. His mixing style is one of the freshest of all time and shines on songs like "Right Jab", and "Second Away" where he is just killing it with the basslines. Supposedly Scientist is still engineering somewhere in Maryland for rock bands? I wish somebody would throw him back in Tubbys with a 4 track. That's one of the craziest things: that all this dub from before 1982 was done on four tracks. Amazing shit. This special 2016 reissue includes a bonus disc including all the original vocal versions with completely remastered sound and huge foldout poster. Official VP pressing with glossy sleeve - it's the version to own!
