Ijahman "Moulding" releases.

Postby TruthTown » Mon Apr 03, 2017 11:00 am

Discussed here before, but couldn't find a proper answer. I know there are some different versions as dubplates, dub versions in LPs, etc...Now Im referring to the official vinyl releases. I have the 7" and the JMI304 12", but there is another 12 in Jahmani as well.

Is there any difference in the Moulding songs of these 2 Jahmani 12"s??

Ijahman / His Majesterians ‎– Moulding / Jah Is Coming Again (Jahmani ‎– JMI 304)....its very long, around 12 minutes.
Ijahman Levi ‎– Moulding / Africa (Jahmani ‎– JMI 501) (¿?¿? dont know this one)

I didn't compare my 2 records.
Thanks for your help

Good question, I have the Jahmani 501 12" release and had heard that the earlier release had a better mix but when I listened to both 12" releases on Youtube I could not really tell the difference. This is what Out on the Floor said on their eBay description about Jahmani 304: "The original 1st and best issue of this classic rootical monster 12". There is a second issue from a few years later with a different mix but this is the one you want".

Hi marko. So the JMI 501 12" has an extended dub? I saw this YT video, and the Moulding song lasts 5 minutes

I think that they uploaded the audio of the LP version, with the label of that vinyl (typical internet mess)...And credits say: "Taken from the album Lily Of My Valley" :?:

There's also this 12min version, but I'm not sure it ever came out on vinyl.

Mystery solved, Jmi 304 has an extra 3 minutes of dub.
I timed the Jmi 501, vocal lasts 5.55 secs and is spliced into the dub which runs for a further 3.05 minutes so total running time is 9 minutes.

OK, then both 12"s have different extended mixes:

Ijahman / His Majesterians ‎– Moulding / Jah Is Coming Again (Jahmani ‎– JMI 304): around 12 minutes
Ijahman Levi ‎– Moulding / Africa (Jahmani ‎– JMI 501): around 9 minutes


That digital track richmrpa mentioned was taken from "The Roots Of Love" CD, called "Moulding A Version" too (and it lasts the same: 12:14 minutes). I think that this is the JMI 304 12" version. I will compare them when I have some time, and will put it here.

Anyone want to hazard a guess if/when this tune will be repressed?

Jmi304 runs 3 minutes longer but both releases seem to be pressed from the same mix aren't they? Is the vocal part of Jmi304 the same length/mix as the LP cut?

Hi marko. That's exactly what I was thinking about...You can compare your copy to the "Moulding A Version" from the "Roots Of Love" Ijahman comp CD, which is the same song (apparently) than the JMI 304 (12 minutes)...

So, the JMI 501 12" (9 minutes) can be:

- a different mix to the JMI 304 (12 minutes)
- same mix to JMI 304 (12 minutes) but shorter (cut off)

Anyway, when I have some time (this weekend) I will try to compare my copy (JMI 304) to the "Moulding A Version" from the "Roots Of Love"

Just checked it: first song of Ijahman compilation CD "Roots Of Love" called "Moulding A Version" is the same "Moulding" from the 12" record JMI 304 (12 minutes)
