Joe Gibbs & The Professionals
Majestic Dub’ was a ten track set released on the Lazer record label in the UK and the Joe Gibbs record label in Jamaica in 1979. This was a time when the disco craze was hitting the island of Jamaica hard so the organ / synths and guitars recorded on top of some of the riddims showcased on this LP have a very recognisable disco feel! This album offers a selection of familiar riddims. There is ‘Social Justice’, a tune across the Augustus Pablo ‘Java’ riddim. Furthermore there’s the ‘To the Foundation’ riddim, courtesy of the late great Dennis Brown. More Dennis Brown riddims include ‘Edward The Eight’, utilising the ‘Stay At Home’ riddim, courtesy of the original Paragon, Mr. John Holt and ‘Nation Of Dub’, riding the ‘How Could I Live’ riddim voiced by artists such as The Sharks, John Holt, Dennis Brown to name but a few.
