The other 45 PSS017 will be 'My Whole World' a Sherman classic. The 45s will be followed by a Bim Sherman album in October 2007.

It's hissy. Tribulation is a killer, but My Whole World is not the next Bim tune I would have liked to have seen revived, 10,000 Careless Ethiopians or I Just Can't Stand It and their outstanding dubs would have been more exciting.

My Whole World in my opinion is one of the nicest reggae songs......

I wonder if there will be anything on the Bim album that wasn't on the relatively recent compilations "Love Forever" and "Rub-a-dub". Or is it sameish but different mixes?

I doubt there will be much new stuff, Bims music has been rereleased various times, but there are tunes like "dispensation" or "valley of tears" that havent been on the efa compilations and the dubs might be different, some of the dubs on rub-a-dub were boring new remixes.....

I just listened to "Tribulation" and surprised to hear it's not the tune released in JA on the Sun Dew label in 1979, which was a version over "Love Forever".

This next title is over a bassline akin to "Black Cinderella". Anybody have any info about its genesis?

Mike - Bim first cut "Tribulation" in 1975. It was released on Sun Dew 7" as by Bim Man and was backed with the version "75 Rock" by Soul Syndicate (matrix JT 5035 - RRS VC / JT 5036 RRS VC)

Image

His second cut, and the one just reissued by Pressure Sounds, was first issued in 1977 on MCM (no matrix info on the record apart from 'CC' on the A side and 'b' on the b side). This cut was also later issued by Bim on Scorpio using the same stamper, as it has exactly the same matrix info (or lack of), but here it was retitled as "Fit To Survive".

Image

This second cut and its version were released on the B side of a UK 12" on the Savannah label in 1979 (SVN 12-2) as "Tribulation", with "Golden Locks" on the A side

The Pressure Sounds site states that the original version (by which I take it they mean the 1975 Sun Dew release) will be on the forthcoming Bim album

Are you sure about your 1979 Sun Dew release being over "Love Forever"? Just listening to the two and although the drum tracks are very similar, the basslines are different - to my ears, at least

I had these tunes on original JA press back in the early 80's, but alas, foolishly sold them.

The upcoming album from PS sounds interesting -- but I really can't see that there is that much else from Bim in the vaults that hasn't already seen re release at least twice -- wasn't the Crucial cuts, and then the later reissues from early 2000's -- more or less it when it comes to Bim's peak output?

Ok, I know there are a clutch of DJ versions out there, and the odd slightly reworked version sides -- but is there much else that is really worthy that we ain't already got ?

I sincerely hope so. But doubt it.

Anyone else know different?

Valley of Tears and Dispensation havent been nor on the Century nor the EFA releases....these might be the ones on the new Bim album, or as stated above, some of the DJ versions

Agreed David, but isn't VALLEY OF TEARS on the easily available TOO HOT album, a record which arguably, isn't that strong, besides perhaps, the wonderful NIGHTMARE, and the reasonable VALLEY OF TEARS.

Probably you are referring to a JA cut to the latter, which I think I have somewhere. Is it on the same rhtyhm as CHANCERY LANE?

Is DISPENSATION a version of REVOLUTION?

I'd be really interested to see if PS can fill up an entire album's worth of worthy or little heard JA stuff.

Just can't see it though. An album's worth of ever so slighlty different versons and lukewarm DJ versions doesn't sound too exciting.

I sincerely hope they can though. It's a tempting prospect, for sure, for all us Bim fanatics.

I look forward to more info.

The original JA recording of "Valley Of Tears" hasn't been on any compilation, and it has a very nice Tubby's version on the other side
