Joe Gibbs

Here is a little bit of dub to brighten up and hopefully warm you up if the weather where you are is anything like what it’s been here over the weekend, still could be worse could be in the Mid-West of the States.

Joe Gibbs was an influential Jamaican producer, who started off working with Lee Perry in 1967 until Perry left to start his own Upsetter label. Gibbs was responsible for many rocksteady productions during the early 70’s.

In 1973 he released the first of his African Dub series of albums with his in-house band The Professionals which included Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare . A further 3 albums followed in the series. Both tracks posted are taken from these albums.

The first track is from Chapter Two and is a remake of a track by Alton Ellis called I’m Still In love and was later used as the backing to a major hit single.

The second track is from Chapter 3 and is a remake of Rockfort Rock by Sound Dimension.
