Complete your Tommy McCook & The Supersonics collection. Short but superlative, "Pleasure Dub" collects twelve atmospheric dubs of rocksteady classics like Phyllis Dillon's 'Get on the Right Track' and 'Things You Say You Love' by the Jamaicans. Pure magic from beginning to end, best exemplified by Raymond Young's eerily plaintive violin solo on 'Dub with Strings' (the dub version of 'The Tide Is High' by the Paragons); most of the six bonus tracks are marred by poor sound, but all are interesting . Best dub album ever, played with some of the best musicians of mid 70's Jamaica. Reply Notify me 1 Helpful.
