I'd just like to make a comment about PS releases. Do keep in mind, PS releases from the mid to late 90s sound great, even compared to some original JAs & UKs (yes, I've side-by-sided). However, the current 05s+ (or so) are shit, just as many labels that are reissuing reggae (or anything) are shit. Bullwackie's, Greensleeves, Trojan, etc. All of these labels have been bought and sold, probably a few times. And currently, almost all of them are putting out dull, digi-ripped crap, that's just the world we live in. To be fair, the few current Greensleeves reissues I have aren't too shabby. Digi-sourced sure, but well done.

The quality of recent reissues has declined drastically in the past decade. As long as it's hot, there will be a sea of people cashing in on simply 'pressing a CD to vinyl'. Outside of any label that's giving you a description of source, work done, representing quality of transfer, etc. Chances are, it's shit. That's not going to change. I've bought a few dozen cheaper reissues over the years when I find them at closeout prices. But no one should ever drop $25-40 on a reissue, and expect quality if it's not from a reputable source that takes care and pride in what they do.

There are some reissue labels (like PS) who in the 90s were doing good work, because they had to sell to a small, very discerning group of weirdos who still played vinyl. Now it's a trend. So, again, as long as there's people out there that just want a cover, more-or-less, you should expect all this stuff to sound like shit. The market will always be the market.
repress fails everywhere in all genre since 80s...........its widly known 1st and early press is the way to go or listen others
Check out new re-issue to come from Pressure Sounds label this automn. A 2LP set with additonal tracks. No need to spend a lot to get it !
This is a 5***** Top Dub LP, fantastic sound quality on this UK pressing and highly recommended for any Dub lover.
