JRLP064

What you have in your hand is Tappa Zukie’s legendary ‘Escape From Hell’ dub album.
Originally released in 1977 as a dub follow up to Tapper’s extraordinary 1976 release
‘Tappa Zukie In Dub’ (JRLP044). The ‘In Dub’ album was cut using the great talents of
engineer Phillip Smart, but when the tracks were pulled together for its follow up
‘Escape From Hell’ Phillip Smart had left Jamaica for New York and his replacement
at the controls was Prince Jammy. Who had only shortly returned from Canada at the
request of King Tubby himself. The purpose was to fill Mr Smart’s position. Tapper Zukie
would be in good hands for as time would tell the Prince was soon to become
King Jammy due to his outstanding studio work. The ‘Escape From Hell’ set was
initially overlooked more to the fact of the small numbers of its original pressing.

The album makes great use of Tappers outstanding Channel One rhythms cut with
Sly and Robbie’s The Revolutionary’s band.

Great rhythms matched with magic from King Tubby’s studio at the hands of Prince
Jammy. We have added for the CD release of this album and at Tappa’s request,
some alternative dubs and tracks that seem to compliment this set. So drop the
needle on this great album and judge for yourself

a fine album cut in fine style …..
