Essential collection of dubby post-punk delights recorded by Brenda Ray in a variety of Naffi related guises in the late 70's and early 80's. So much great stuff here that it's probably best explained by Brenda herself (taken from the record's liner notes):

"Always a fan of ska, reggae had become popular and although we loved Augustus Pablo, King Tubby, Joe Gibbs, Lee Perry, we didn't want to play reggae, but we wanted to dub-up stuff that was not reggae. Not only that, we were listening to avant-garde jazz from the US - Alice Coltrane, Archie Shepp, Asha Puthli (Ornette Coleman/Science Fiction), Bobby Hutcherson, Marion Brown, Moacir Santos (Carnival of Spirits), Pharaoh Sanders, in addition to the sounds of doo-wop, rockabilly and early rock and roll and the cosmic funk of Lonnie Liston Smith."
