6 Minutes In Zion: Gladstone Anderson’s Peace Pipe Dub

We used to feature a crucial classic reggae album each week here at MIDNIGHT RAVER.  Titled “Pick of the Week,” I would upload to Mixcloud a high quality vinyl transfer of a noteworthy roots reggae LP.  While most picks were vintage out-of-print records, some raised concerns that I was providing entire albums for free.  In an effort to address those concerns I have crafted 6 MINUTES IN ZION, a weekly mini-mix of my selections from a crucial classic reggae LP.  Why 6 minutes?  Well, here’s why

Produced by Gladstone Anderson, recorded at Channel One and mixed at Tuff Gong, Peace Pipe Dub is a phenomenal record, truly a must-have for any reggae fanatic.

Gladstone Anderson is a Jamaican pianist, keyboard player, and singer, who has played a major part in the island’s musical history, playing a key role in defining the ska sound and the rocksteady beat, and playing on hundreds of recordings as a session musician.  He has appeared on just about every record of note from the golden era of reggae.   He is also a solo artist, and leader of Gladdy’s All Stars, featuring bassist Jackie Jackson, drummer Winston Grennan, guitarist Hux Brown, and keyboardist Winston Wright.
