Joe Gibbs & The Professionals
No Bones For The Dogs: Dubs From The Mighty Two 1974 To 1979
Pressure Sounds

By JUDSON KILPATRICK

Published April 7, 2006

An early employer of Lee Perry and Niney the Observer, Joe Gibbs is a living legend, one of reggae’s most successful producers. This collection covers his groundbreaking years with engineer Errol Thompson, when they scored so many #1 hits they were dubbed the Mighty Two. With a studio band including players such as Sly Dunbar, Robbie Shakespeare, guitarist Bingy Bunny, pianist Ossie Hibbert and saxman Tommy McCook, they released landmark records like Culture’s “Two Sevens Clash” (represented here by dubs) and “I’m Not Ashamed.” Other highlights include “Roots Kunte Kintye,” based on the Wailing Wailers’ “Hypocrites,” “C/W Burning Version” (Sylford Walker’s “Burn Babylon”), and the jaunty title track, an instrumental of Alton Ellis’ “Why Birds Follow Spring.” There’s also a wicked version of Cornell Campbell’s “No Man’s Land,” while “The Road Is Rough” (the Heptones’ “Be the One”) features an early example of the now ubiquitous rewind. The rhythms are all familiar (or should be), and the tracks are beefed up with sound effects and vocal snippets, making this one of the most entertaining dub collections around.
