Star Wars Dub – Phil Pratt [1978]

Star Wars Dub

This is pure late 70s bandwagon jumping – but what a way to do it!

This is an ultra-rare dub recording from producer Phil Pratt that was released on Burning Sounds in 1978.

The album cover is a total fanboy masterpiece that sees two subjects that attract their fair share of anorak-type obesssives, ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Dub’, and both collide in an explosion of striking artwork. The album sleeve credits the art to ‘Standard Man’, however there is nothing standard about the album artwork. Love it.

Track Listing:

  • African Communication
  • Which Clapp
  • Star Wars
  • Side Walk Rider
  • Tower Dub
  • Stay Loose
  • Con-Man
  • Concertman
  • Roffa Yet

Good luck with finding this anywhere now – copies often pop up on ebay and sell quickly (and expensively). However, if you do own a copy, take a photo and post it in the comments – we’d like to see it (even if nobody else does).

    Hi there,
    I designed this cover with my business associate of the time Nic Alderton. We did about half a dozen covers or so for Burning Sounds and we didn’t last long only a few months.

    Hi There,

    There was Rough Road various artists – pretty crap cover! Earl George (George Faith) One and Only – that’s quite good, my associate did that mostly I think. Another with guns I can’t recall and a few more that I can’t remember. I only have Rough Road I think, be nice to have a copy of star wars dub though.
