"From the 1950s, when his sound system ruled Kingston's dancehalls, through to his untimely passing early in 1975, Arthur 'Duke' Reid remained a giant of the Jamaican music industry, playing, promoting and producing some of the most important and influential recordings ever to see issue on the island. Such was the quality of his work that long after his old friend, Sonia Pottinger had acquired his Treasure Isle studio and catalogue, demand for his productions persisted, prompting the regular reissue of his hits, be they in original form, as remixes, DJ cuts or dub versions. Fortunately, in Errol Brown, Pottinger had in her employ one of Jamaica's foremost sound engineers, whose talents at the mixing desk ensured the high quality of any reinterpretations of Reid's work, as evidenced by a trio of dub albums he oversaw in the mid-Seventies. These three seminal long-players provide the focus for this essential 2CD set, with disc one comprising both volumes of Treasure Dub and disc two featuring Pleasure Dub along with a host of rare and previously unissued bonus dub cuts from the period. The result is arguably the finest collection of classic dub music for decades!"
