referencing Dub Me Crazy Part 4 (Escape To The Asylum Of Dub), LP, Album, ARI LP 011, ARIS LP 011

Contrary to some opinions, I suggest that the "Dub Me Crazy" series (of which I own all, in one format or another) improves chronologically for the first five albums. That said, they are all classic and collectable - but I would select this one over the first three.

Track A1) "Rasta Chase" is a strong "riddim" with a catchy bass line and interesting afrocentric pattern on the drums.

Track A2) "White House Race" is an even "dubbier" version of the previous track "Rasta Chase".

Track A6) "Kingston Flight 303" stands out as being even more ambient / atmospheric than the other material, is a nice change of mood.

The remaining tracks offer less individuality, but are still a good sample of the whole series.

This also is the last album in the series that appears to contain entirely live drums throughout. From "part 5" onwards we hear much more synth drums and sequences.
