Familyman - Soul Constitution - Dub Store CD/LP


This seems to be compiled from the Heartbeat collections from 1999, Aston Familyman Barrett - Cobra Style & Familyman In Dub along with the PK/Honest Jons 10" Soul Constitution.
The track Ixes (on the Dub Store issue) is the B side to the Gideons High 7" by Max Edwards which Dub Store also reissued not too long ago iirc.

Aston 'Family Man' Barrett is much more than just one of the most renowned reggae bass players of all time. As the bassist of choice for Bob Marley and the Wailers from 1969 up until Marley's untimely passing, Barrett acted as chief musical arranger and bandleader for the Wailers, greatly altering the course of reggae in the process. He has also been one of the most important Jamaican session musicians, beginning with the Hippie Boys in the late 1960s, and after helping reggae to become better established internationally as a member of Lee 'Scratch' Perry's Upsetters band, he also performed bass duties for a range of noteworthy producers, including Bunny Lee and Keith Hudson, among many others. What is less known, but equally important, is that Family Man produced some of the most challenging and experimental reggae of the 1970s and 80s, issuing unique works in small quantity in Jamaica on a range of short-lived record labels. Soul Constitution collects the best of Family Man's instrumental and dub output, issued between 1972 and 1982. Aside from a few early tracks recorded at Randy's studio in the heart of downtown Kingston, much of the work was crafted at the rehearsal room of the original Tuff Gong, based at Marley's uptown home at 56 Hope Road; some of these works have the very first instances of a drum machine being used in reggae, and all are marked by the supreme musicianship and unorthodox production techniques that has made Family Man's releases greatly prized by reggae collectors. Several of the tracks are appearing for the first time on long-playing LP and CD format, and most come complete with stripped-down dub counterparts.

Worth a listen, at the least. For me, too many of FM's, productions, are inconsistent. Though, I do think, it's very creative at times. This set, however, does indeed, collect some of the best. If only, they'd not included those drum machine tunes. I love the majestic dread sounds, FM released, best of all! Smile
