So who are “The Breadwinners”? The Breadwinners are Alan Redfern and anyone else he happens to work with. Al is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, recording / mixing engineer and producer. Sometimes it seems it would be easier to list the instruments he doesn’t play – the album features him on drums, bass, keyboards, guitar, percussion and harp – that’s harp as in “harp” not “mouth harp”. Whilst he plays the majority of the instruments on the album he is also joined by several guest musicians, most notably the sax and flute player known only as “Stally” who features prominently throughout, weaving his magic with his languid, lyrical style – nothing flash, just pure niceness!

This vinyl edition of “Dubs Unlimited” is that rare beast, the Triple A “All Analogue Album”, recorded on analogue multitrack, mixed to quarter inch analogue tape and cut direct to the lathe – not a ProTool in sight!

For the avoidance of doubt this official King Spinna release is NOT the same as the CD-R version of the album which we have already been selling on our website. The CD-R contains early mixes of the tracks, whereas the King Spinna release features brand new mixes with lots of overdubs – brass, flute, harmonica and vocals. The new analogue mixes give the album a warmth and richness, especially in the bottom end, which is lacking on the CD-R version.

The album has been totally re-sequenced, and professionally mastered by the one and only Kevin Metcalfe at The Soundmasters, London.

We still have a few copies of the CD-R album and will keep it available on this website for as long as a demand for it continues.
