The first session of the African Roots series from the Wackies imprint rerubs tunes from legendary producer/keyboardist Clive Hunt. Featuring a veritable who's who of dub music (not to mention the man, Bullwackie himself). For the first half, Hunt works through dubs that are heavy on the electronics and reverb but spare no expense at getting it right. It's consistently pure instrumental joy for anyone who is a die-hard fan of dub, but it's also instantaneously accessible to the casual listener. The second half brings in a set of proper tunes that are heavier on the dub and reverb accents than the first half, especially the intense percussion workout during "Always Dubbing," where Hunt's elaborate treatments make the drums sound like heavy artillery fire during wartime. With sparse, open arrangements and some of the best dub compositions around, this is a highly recommended release worthy of your hard-earned dollar. The sleeve has a few scratches with the vinyl itself is VG.

This vinyl record is a must-have for any music lover who appreciates African roots. The act 1 performed by the talented Act band is a gem in the music industry and is sure to please your ears. The record is in great shape and has been well taken care of, ensuring that you can enjoy the music for many years to come.

The record format is a classic and the Act label adds to its value. The roots style of the music is both authentic and captivating. This vinyl record is a perfect addition to any collection and is sure to impress. Don't miss out on the opportunity to own this masterpiece and experience the magic of African roots music.
