In an interview with Reggae Quarterly Magazine (issue 3, 1982/83) Augustus Pablo states that he gave a tape of this Lp to ‘somebody in America’ who put it out as a record but did not pay. Pablo admits that he got a copy of this LP, presumably the original Clocktower issue, and copied the cover and released the record on his own ‘Yard’ label in Jamaica.
“Just kind pirate it myself” said Pablo, adding “I have the rights so it is not really pirate but, true, I never had no negative of the jacket.”
This explains why the ‘original’ Jamaican issue jacket looks like it is pirated from the original US clocktower issue! It also confirms that the original Clocktower issue is the actual first press, but is in fact a pirate pressing!

Any recommendations for a CD version with good sound quality? I recently bought one by Clocktower Records but had to send it back as it was a muddy sounding, poor quality audio rip from a vinyl LP. Appreciate any input!

I still have my original copy of this LP, bought in 1977 it still has the price "£4.50" written on the front in biro. The matrix is DSR 4710 A and DSR 4711 B. I definitely remember the shop I bought it from, I only visited that shop (very frequently...) in 1977 and the girl in the shop always wrote the price on the front cover so it's very definitely a 1976 or early 1977 press. I believe the original press is the 1st Clocktower (USA) one which Pablo then photocopied to print the JA
Yard press.

To me this one has the wrong lemma as it is a dub record. KING TUBBS the dubmaster is the main artist, giving Pablo's original productions the dub treatment. The original U. S. Clocktower sleeve credits it this way.

Confusing tracklisting but excellent Dubs all the same. A must for any Dub lover!

This is a lovely album but details are confusing. I've just bought the 3 vinyl disc box. The last track on Disc 3 "Satta" sounds horribly warped - is it supposed to? I've also owned and got rid of a very crackly repressing on brown vinyl. Hate listening to dub on CD but getting decent vinyl version is hard.

I'm lucky enough to own an original of this fantastic album. This was the first dub album I purchased. When I saw it at the record shop, I was attracted by the cover and found the disc was really thick and tough. Couldn't go wrong for $8.00.

Original copies have the word "Lion" spoken before kicking into 'Keep on dubbing'. This was absent from the later Yard repress that can be confused for the original.
