1974 - Pressure Sounds- studio - discs: 1

Arthur "Duke" Reid's nephew, Errol Brown took over the Treasure Isle studio's controls after his uncle's demise in 1974. He was a junior engineer at Treasure's and when he found himself at the controls after the departure of the Duke he mixed three Dub albums based on the huge available catalogue. "Pleasure Dub" is the third Dub album in a series of three mixed by Brown. The other two are "Treasure Dub Volume One" and "Treasure Dub Volume Two". The original sources are provided among the others by Phyllis Dillon ("The Right Track"), The Paragons ("The Tide Is High" and "Riding On A High & Windy Way"), The Jamaicans ("Things You Say You Love") and Alton Ellis. The old fashioned Rocksteady and Early Reggae rhythms are the basis for some quite good Dubs. The resulting tracks are not heavy as it would have been with a King Tubby treatement but here lies their beauty. They are clean, efficacious Dubs mostly based on classics.
