Early B History

  • Words: Dub ID
  • Label: King Jam

A genius producer in Kingston dug up this long-unheard reel with deejay Doctor Early B chatting on it. The slow, bassy riddim sounds like a Channel One, Roots Radics sin'ting-the kind of jam that Eek-A-Mouse or Yellowman and Fathead would ride-and Early B delivers an intelligent, plainspoken account of slavery and its repercussions in Jamaica. With an Earl Dunkley track also available on said version, this makes a visit to your dub vendor essential.
