Enos McLeod "Enos In Dub"

Postby chuckasaurusrex » Thu Aug 21, 2014 1:30 pm

Greetings. Roots Archives indicates that the Enos McLeod "Enos in Dub" compilation includes tracks from both the 1970s and 1980s. His earlier stuff is great IMHO, but I'm not familiar with what came later. Does anyone know how many (if any) of the tracks on this album feature digital rhythms (which I want to avoid)? Thanks in advance.

how come when I try to go to roots archive (always worked before) I end up at some "community roots archive" site? very puzzling. can someone give me a good url?

this enos in dub, was that put out by pressure sounds at one point? or maybe bim shermans label? or maybe even on-u sound? I know I have this somewhere, wasn't too impressed with it actually but I don't recall hearing any digi riddims. could very well be wrong about that.

JB, you might be thinking of the "Genius of Enos" compilation on PS. I understand that reviews were mixed but I was among those that loved it. The "In Dub" album I was referring to is this one (on Century, which I think may indeed be Bim Sherman's label as you suggest):

Peace.

if no one else offers, I will find this and listen to it if you like, and give a short summary.

well been looking around for this and have come up empty on either the dub in question or the release on pressure sounds...which makes me think they are together somewhere. unfortunately that "somewhere" may be a thousand miles that way or this way, as I have a sneaking hunch they are both at one of my remote locations. not much help but I DID find the Century CD Goodies Best, which is also Enos Mcleod, and I was hoping maybe the dub was a direct dub of this release, but from looking at track titles it does not appear to be so.

will let you know if it shows up somehow but as of right now I would not advise holding your breath

love that "goodies best"; thanks for the reminder -- I haven't listened to it in ages.

Genius of Enos is excellent -- I've never understood the grumblings I've heard about that one.

I might be misremembering, but I think I once tracked down some sound samples for Enos In Dub when I was considering buying it and found that there were a handful of digi tracks, which is too much for me. Again, though, I could be wrong about that. But I didn't end up buying it for some reason.

I've just dug out the Enos in Dub CD. The first 5 tracks are not digi and neither is track 15. All other 9 tracks are digi though and so I'd not recommend this collection....

Lemmy and especially Chaz: thanks very much for your input. I'll pass on that one for sure; shame though, as those few non-digi tracks are pretty nice.
