Deeper Knowledge/Digikiller records are not to be trusted with your calendar – having just announced their June re-issues in early July. Fortunately they can be trusted to serve some quite superb vinyl re-issues and the latest crop is unlikely to disappoint: A Tubbys digital piece on 7″, their first foray into albums with two Channel One dub LP’s, a classic Channel One dancehall single and a couple of early 80’s 7″ rarities from Barry Brown.
- Junior Murvin – Make It and Set It/Version (Taurus)
A 1987 digital cut that takes it slow. Released on King Tubby’s Taurus label but apparently a self production.
- Frankie Paul – Worries in the Dance/Version
Perhaps Frankie Pauls finest moment, he cut this for Junjo too but this Channel One piece is far tougher.
- Barry Brown – Land of the Living/Version
An in demand Barry Brown self production on a reproduction of its original Snowbird label that goes for £60-£80 on original on ebay.
- Barry Brown – Stone of the Arrival/Version
Another Snowbird self production and even more obscure than Land Of The Living – heavy like lead!
- Channel 1 LP – Satta Dub
The first time that Deeper Knowledge have reissued albums they come with a pair of hard to find Channel One dub LP’s. Both are issued with silk screen sleeves like the original issues and are taken straight from master tape.
