Separate mix

just made great discovery > release of Big Youth's album Screaming Target (1989 issue) has mix made in separate channels. Toasting form left and the rest from right. I've found the review:

"Unfortunately, Trojan decided to separate the mix for the 1989 issue, sending Youth's toasts to the left channel and the rhythm track to the right, resulting in a rather unbalanced listening experience, depending upon your proximity to the speakers. That aside, the music on this release is simultaneously a benchmark for reggae in general and the DJ form in particular — and a classic of recorded music, regardless of the genre."

Anyway, its great stuff for sampling. Has anyone heard about some other alike recordings?

Please let me know

Hi, I'm not sure whether you want to sample the voice or the rhythm. The album called Upsetters 14 Dub Blackboard Jungle has similar weird stereo panning: all vocals (not much but there is a little toasting), noises, chords on one side, all bass and drum on the other.

Klaus5: Thanks for great info source.

This I like most on "old" reggae/dub music - you can always find some new hidden layers... ;-)
