Jah Shaka Presents Dub Masters Volume 1

Collection of dubs released in 1989 that previously could only be heard on Jah Shaka's world famous sound system . Kicks off with a sublime dub to Burning Spear's "Institution"  that features a mighty deep and hypnotic bass line that coupled with the snatches of righteous/ pleading vocals courtesy of the legend that is Winston Rodney can almost give me bloodshot eyes ( as often seen sported by Bunny Wailer in the '70s), stone cold sober . Not sure if there was a volume 2 to this but on its own still a good set of dubs worth adding to your itunes (or similar) dub playlist . Vinyl rip Here .


1. Institution Dub - Burning Spear
2. Very Well Dub - Wailing Souls
3. Row Fisherman Dub - Wailing Souls
4. Wild Suspense - Wailing Souls
5. Natural Aggression - Aswad
6. Mosman Skank - Aswad
7. Carry Us Beyond - Human Cargo
8. Ghetto In The Sky (Version) - Aswad


  1. Great selection. For a great assortment of his Lps see

    If you like pure rootsy, dub and/or bass you *feel* then do try to see him live if possible. Sublime, powerful & inspirational.

    Sorry, you might have guessed, i am more than fanatical about Shaka's music!
