"Cry Tuff Dub Chapter 1" is hailed as one of the best Dub albums ever made. Produced by Prince Far I, aided and abetted by Adrian Sherwood. Far I?s rhythms were always powerful and formed the backdrop to some of his most popular Deejay hits. He always used Jamaica?s top session musicians and "Cry Tuff Dub Chapter 1" is no exception. Sly Dunbar and Flabba Holt provided the rhythm section. Sadly Prince Far I was murdered in Kingston, Jamaica in 1983, another victim of Kingston?s political violence, allegedly for painting out political slogans painted on the wall of his home. However the strength and vitality of his music lives on and Pressure Sounds is proud to present the re-release of this classic album with its original sleeve and never before seen pictures of the Prince in the accompanying 8-page booklet.
One of the Greatest Dub Records of All Time!!!!

Do you like Augustus Pablo's "King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown"?
Do you like On-U Sound and the work of Adrian Sherwood?
Are you a fan of Dub Music?
If you answered yes to any of these questions and you have the money, buy this record NOW!!!
There is very little if any of Prince Far I's thundering voice on these cuts, so don't expect that. But do expect some of the deepest, wildest and most mind altering dubs that you have ever heard.
This album was out of print for a long time. I used to hug myself with glee knowing I had a copy of it when you couldn't get it. I put it on a CD-R combined with Pablo's "Rockers Uptown" and it is one of my most listened to CD's.
I don't know what else to say. But someone had to get a review onto this release, letting the uninitiated know of it's glory.
