Double Pressure

Delroy WilsonPressure Sounds have got two more reissues slated for the late summer and early autumn of 2009.

First up on 8 August is a Delroy Wilson LP called Dub Plate Style that was originally issued as 20 Golden Greats on the Third World label in the UK. The tunes are Bunny Lee productions but the mix was done specifically for the LP by Prince Jammy at Tubby’s.

There are 20 tunes on the re-issue that will be released on single CD or double LP (there are no missing tracks on the LP release). Most of these tunes will be familiar to any Delroy Wilson fan but these mixes are special and give this a real edge.

Following on from the Delroy Wilson set is Sound System International by King Tubby And the Dynamites which see’s release on 19 September. This set, originally released in the mid 70’s features King Tubby dub workouts Sound System Internationalon some famous Clancy Eccles rhythms such as Herbsman (see below). The original 10 tracks are suplemented on the single LP/CD release with 5 bonus cuts featuring the Dynamites, King Stitt and more.
