""I Wah Dub" on More Cut Records is true Dub wise of the reggae scene of the late 1970's and could also be said as another starting point for electronica music. With the band personnel of Jah Bunny, on drums on 'Steadie', 'Jazz', Angus Gaye, on drums on 'Electrocharge', 'Reflections', 'Oohkno', 'Nough', and 'Binoculars', Nick 'Stalker' Baily, ploy moog on 'Electrocharge', and 'Reflections', John Kpiaye, guitar and piano on 'Jazz', Tony Robinson, piano and organ on 'Reflections', Julio Finn, harmonica on 'Steadie', Patrick Tenyue, Melodic a on 'Blaubart', voices on 'Nough', and Dennis Bovell, drums, bass, guitar, piano, organ, Fender Rhodes, and percussion one can not go wrong with this in one's collection."
