Hot on the heals of their first release, a King Kong 12″ from 1988, Dug Out records jump back a full 14 years for their next release; the stunning Observe Life by Michael Rose on the Upsetter label.
Mark Ainley and Mark Ernestus of Dug Out know their tunes for sure (either that or they are systematically going to reissue all the tunes with the highest values according to ebay monitoring site Popsike!) and this is likely to be a popular release. It comes complete with a replica of the original Upsetter label complete with the typo that came on the original issue (Obserb instead of Observe). At around Â£6 a poke it’s not cheap but when it’s good as this it’s hard to complain.
