Dubber Side of the Moon (Easy Star All-Stars)

The All-Stars’ reggae version of Dark Side of the Moon was an inspired idea, realised with wit and authenticity.

Re-imaginings of Radiohead’s OK Computer and the Beatles’ Sergeant Pepper followed; where would they go next? A new version of the first album could have easily been the unimaginative cash-in option, but luckily these re-recordings, influenced by UK dub-step, Brazilian music and European dub and electronica trends, are genuinely different from the first album, sometimes radically so.
