The Bomber by Sly and Robbie of The BlackWood Dub Album
Sly Dunbar & Robbie Shakespeare have been the ‘go to’ team for anyone needing a rhythm section for years and a quick look at their discography leaves you in no doubt about the quality of their bosses but their personal products haven’t been as great – the last thing I had was the execrable ‘Rhythm Killers’.
This, on the other hand, is a superb release.
Their #1 engineer from their own Mixing Lab, Alberto ‘Burur’ Blackwood, called them up to record for him and he has produced this together with Gilroy ‘Rolex’ Stewart Sly & Robbie loved the idea of recording a dub album for the first time in years and got together with some of their favourite partners – Mikey Mao Chung & Dalton Browne on guitars, Ansel Collins on keyboards and Sticky & Skully on percussion. They headed out to the Harry J Studios and called up the Compass Point Allstars and laid down a simply stunning album.
The thing here that sets them apart from almost anyone else is the confidence of the playing and production. Everything is where it needs to be and the album has the feel of being played straight through – if you can imagine a ‘Live’ dub album.
Robbie Shakespeare’s bass is, as you would expect, the fulcrum around which the whole album turns with Sly’s drums generating the counterpoint and the work around these two creates a huge and dark maze of sound.
Frankly, this shows the rest how it should be done, setting a new marker for the youngsters coming through.
Listen to it once and it sounds powerful and fine, listen again and you can hear the finer detail and the third time it all comes together in a symphony of dub.
