Prince Far I Cry Tuff Dub Encounter: Chapter 3 on LP
1980's Cry Tuff Dub Encounter Chapter 3 by Prince Far I and the Arabs was originally released in the UK by that most avuncular of record shop proprietors Keith Stone of Daddy Kool. The whole affair was racked out in rapid studio time, conforming with the DIY ethics of the era - not to mention the lack of cash. The set features super-heavy deliveries by the Prince, pre-ambient doodlings and quirky noises from David Toop and Steve Beresford, and backing vocals from the Slit axis of Ari Up together with Viv Goldman and Elizabeth Archer. Cry Tuff Dub Encounter Chapter 3 is important as it marked the handing on of the producer's baton from Far I to Sherwood, soon to launch On U Sound.
