Release Date:12/16/2016;Notes:LP version. Jamaican Recordings reissue Tapper Zukie's legendary Escape From Hell album, originally released in 1977 as a dub follow up to Tapper's exceptional 1976 release, In Dub (JRCD 044CD/JRLP 044LP). The In Dub album was cut using the great talents of engineer Philip Smart, but when the tracks were pulled together for it's follow up Escape To Hell, Philip Smart had left Jamaica for New York and his replacement at the controls was Prince Jammy, who had just returned from Canada at the request of King Tubby himself. The purpose was to fill Mr. Smart's position. Tapper was definitely in good hands and at the time he could tell that Prince Jammy 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 it's original pressing. The album makes great use of Tapper's extraordinary Channel One rhythms cut with Sly and Robbie's The Revolutionaries. Great rhythms matched the magic from King Tubby's studio at the hands of Prince Jammy.
