Full Title - No Bones For The Dogs - Dubs From 1974-79. Joe Gibbs and the Professionals laid down some of the most devastating tracks coming out of Kingston in the late 1970's. Collected here are their most outstanding and rare productions from the period. Producer Gibbs and engineer Errol Thompson, known as 'The Mighty Two', assembled the cream of Kingston's session musicians to lay down the rhythms for massive tracks by Dennis Brown, Culture, Gregory Isaacs, and others. So settle back, put the headphones on, turn the bass up and sink into the deepest Jamaican dubs you've never heard before. Pressure Sounds. Slipcase. 2002.

"There is not one weak track on this CD. It's all dubs from the seventies. The title track is an early DJ style track over Alton Ellis' Why Birds Follow Spring', 'I Stand Accused' is very rootsy, a Gregory Isaacs dub, 'Six Foot Six' is also cool, 'I Am Not Ashamed Version', 'Informer Version' (Jah See Them A Come), 'Fulfilment' (Two Sevens Clash) and 'Baldhead Bridge' are four psychedelic killer dubs from Culture songs. 'Su Su Version' is the same rhythm as Prince Far I's 'Heavy Manners', 'Burning Version' a chilling dub of Sylford Walker's 'Burn Babylon', Roots Kunta Kinte: The Wailer's "Hypocrites", Give It To Jah = Jr Byles' Heart And Soul; Road Is Rough : Be The One - The Heptones; No Man's Version: Up Park Camp riddim very cool; 'War' is a kind of medley of studio one riddims; 'War Is Over' is ok, it's the dub to George Nooks' version of 'Tribal War' but I like the original by Little Roy much better; 'Financial Business' is a seriously crazy take on 'Love Is Not A Gamble' riddim; Alan: Hit By Larry : Real Rock, I've heard better versions of real rock, but this riddim is always nice; Earthquake: a very calm riddim, but with sound effects that make it really sound like an earthquake. So if you're interested in 70s reggae, and you have some money, don't hesitate: I personally guarantee you it will not dissapoint."
