Description

Jamaican reggae duo Dave and Ansel Collins released their 1971 Reggae debut album "Double Barrel". The single of the same name, "Double Barrel", topped the british and Jamaican charts, and the follow-up "Monkey Spanner" also had international success as well.

"Double Barrel" was sampled by hip-hop artist Special Ed and two of Dave Barker's introductory shouts ("Don't watch that, watch this!" from "Funky Funky Reggae" and "This is the heavy, heavy monster sound!" from "Monkey Spanner") were echoed by singer Chas Smash in the introduction to the Madness single "One Step Beyond" quotes. All of the songs on the album were written by jamaican heavyweight Winston Riley and it was the first record to feature the legendary first record to feature legendary drummer and percussionist Sly Dunbar. Shortly after the release of "Double Barrel", Dave and Ansel parted ways.

This 50th Anniversary Edition is now available as a limited edition of 750 individually numbered Copies on orange vinyl.
