The dub classic celebrating the four decades of 1977 to 2017 now officially re-issued as 40 th Anniversary Remaster-Edition in a picture sleeve! The Joe Gibbs "African Dub" records are considered to be among the first and best dub albums ever recorded. The series, recorded between 1972 and 1978 feature the Joe Gibbs house band aka The Professionals. The tracks are instrumental re-takes on the popular hits of the day. The innovation of sound effects, echo and delay triggered by Gibbs and engineer Errol Thompson (known as The Mighty Two) is what set the mold and created the sub-genre. Chapter Two of the series is one of the proofs for timeless musical popularity and iconic artwork.

The quote: "The second volume of instrumental dub from Joe Gibbs' studio finds him still working with members of the Soul Syndicate and We the People bands, and utilizing the formidable mixing talents of Errol Thompson. What sets this volume somewhat apart from the other three is the number of rhythms it carries over from the rocksteady era: "Chapter Two" is a remix of the Techniques' late-'60s classic "Queen Majesty", "Peeping Tom" reworks the Melodians' "You Have Caught Me", and "My Best Dub" is an instrumental and nicely dubbed-up recut of the early Wailers track "Hypocrites." But it also includes some heavyweight rockers and one-drop material, including "Angola Crisis" (based on a familiar rhythm later used for such roots reggae hits as "Uptown Top Ranking" (Althea & Donna) and "Three Piece Suit") and an absolutely brilliant dub mix of Bob Andy's "Chained", here rendered in dark, minimalist tones with drastic dubwise effects and retitled "Third World." Along with the third volume, this is one of the most impressive of the four discs in the African Dub series."
