What the press say:

The latest Blood and Fire reissue makes available the extremely scarce Randy's Dub LP, originally issued in Jamaica in 1975 in a pressing limited to 200 copies. While conservative compared to later dub records, it was revolutionary in its time, thanks to engineer Errol "ET" Thompson, whose musical ear is evidenced by the tasteful way he adds and subtracts tracks in these crisp, stunning mixes. A Milwaukee connection exists here: a couple of tunes feature harmonica courtesy of Milwaukee bluesman Steve Wiest, although he is miscredited as "Chicago Steve" from Madison. Wiest was in Kingston in 1974, and performed with Toots & The Maytals and Inner Circle before heading home in '75. Bobby Tanzilo, Shepherd Express, Milwaukee (USA), August 1998
