Strictly crucial cuts from Yabby You alongside The Prophets -

Pressure sounds do it again, this time with a superb collection of dubs and rarities from the great Yabby You aka Vivian Jackson, alongside his backing band 'The Prophets'.

Spread across the two discs, you can find a number of great tracks from an era of roots that will continue to shine through, especially these tunes that Yabby laid his hands and voice on - this is raw, glistening, concise and righteous roots, no denying it.

Most of the tracks on here are previously unreleased dubplate mixes, and each one was restored with love from the original records for this collection, maintaining it's 'dubplate' aesthetic throughout, it's a pleasure to let this tracks play and soak up the vibes.

Presented in style, aside from the music, it's also very much worth buying this in order to see and read the extensive sleeve notes and pictures, telling the story of an encounter with Yabby You and 'friends'.
