Record Label: Get On Down
7 inch singles were instrumental to the development of the Jamaican music industry, more affordable than full lengths for the consumer, they also allowed the labels to turnaround what was being recorded into music played from their booming sound systems as quickly as possible. In that spirit, Get On Down will be reissuing some of the most crucial reggae and ska sides on 45.
This time out Get On Down has collected two Bunny Lee produced masterpieces into a never before issued 45. On the A Side, King Tubby works his magic on The Aggrovators “A Noisy Place”, the instrumental version of John Holt & Horrace Andy’s classic cut “A Quiet Place.” Rather than drop “A Quite Place” into the mix, a second and more rare Tubby dub of the cut known as “A Ruffer Version” rounds out the single. The argument can be made that no one was more instrumental in the development of dub reggae than King Tubby, a statement even (many days) his friend and sometime rival Lee Perry would agree with.
