5 (?) of the rhythms are on "Mr. Brown (Teddy Brown) - Bad Man Wagon"

true, thanks, although it does not seem to be a straight vocal to dub thing, like you mentioned, it's more a "replayed the rhythms" kind of thing

I quite enjoy this set. Very similar to the A-side of the Tough Guys in Dub set if I recall correctly. The first six tracks (full A-side and half of second side) are from Badman Wagon. The remaining two dubs are from Ray I's Vision-album on Top Ranking (both those rhythms pop up on Tough Guys as well).

I do not recall the rhythms being replayed ... they are dubs of the actual vocals. Or did I misunderstand what you meant with »it's more a ›replayed the rhythms‹ kind of thing«?

no no, you did not misunderstand me, to me it does indeed sound as if they re-recorded the rhythms, to my (albeit extremely untrained) ears there seem to be minor differences

Fascinating. Will have to give it a re-listen but I do not recall reacting on them being different recordings than the album cuts. They did do it oncealready (thinking of that confusing Israel Tafari and Same Song Dub mess).

Same takes, they just sped up the tapes a semitone.

Another great example of real Reggae recorded in Florida / Miami, a trend started by Bob Marley & The Wailers 5 years earlier.

Thanks for that info ... I raise your semitone with a halftone.
