""Revolution dub" dates from the early days of the Black Ark studio and features nine short stabs of stripped down minimalist dub music, instantly recognisable as the work of Lee "Scratch" Perry the Upsetter. It's one of my favourite dub albums of the 1970's, even though by 21st century standards it's more than a little brief (just over 30 minutes is simply not enough these days). This cd reissue also suffers from poor sound quality on some of the tracks, which sadly is often the case with Lee Perry re-releases, but fortunately the quality of the music shines through. The opening "Dub revolution" sets the mood: slow, deep and heavy, with only some crisp rhythm guitar prominent in the mix alongside the bass and drums, plus intermittent fx and vocal interruptions from the Upsetter ("This is dub revolution! Music to rock the nation!" etc).... Perry has always taken risks with sound, using his maverick imagination to push the very basic technology at his disposal to the limits. Maybe not as slick-sounding as some people would like, his productions have always been infused with a special kind of musical madness and this album is no exception. For example, "Doctor on the go" features snippets from vintage British TV sitcom "Doctor in the house" mixed into a version of Junior Byles' excellent "The long way" and somehow it works perfectly. Go figure."
