The fourth volume in the African Dub All-Mighty series was originally released in 1979, and like the previous three discs it features rhythm tracks laid down by such famous session men as Sly Dunbar, Robbie Shakespeare, Lloyd Parks, and Franklin "Bubblers" Waul, most of whom were already known as members of the Revolutionaries and the We the People band, but who recorded at Joe Gibbs' studio as the Professionals.

Errol Thompson ran the board for all four collections of dub mixes, and while this fourth instalment isn't quite as inspired as the third, it's also a bit more interesting and adventurous than the first. Some of these mixes are two or three times removed from the vocal tracks that were originally released - Iron Gate, for example, is a dub mix of a recut (by Althea & Donna) of the Heptones' proto-slack rocksteady classic Fattie Fattie; Fashion One is a remix of Dennis Brown's remake of Alton Ellis' 1960s classic Girl I've Got a Date.
