Siren Records

Since making his recording debut in the early Seventies with legendary British reggae band, Matumbi, Dennis ‘Blackbeard’ Bovell has repeatedly demonstrated his supreme talent and versatility in a variety of music fields. And yet enormity of his impact upon the UK’s music scene over the past five decades has remained largely overlooked. ‘The DuBMASTER – The Essential Anthology’ sets to finally address this injustice by presenting the first serious retrospective of Dennis’s output as both a performer and producer. Charting his career from the Seventies up to the present day, this handsomely packaged double CD album presents 38 of his most celebrated reggae works - including Janet Kay’s seminal lovers rock classic, ‘Silly Games’ – as well as rarities and previously unissued treasures from the vaults. Compiled by the artist himself, the collection is further enhanced by Dennis’s fascinating account of his life in the music business over the past half century, with his words enriched by rare photos.
