King TubbyConcrete Jungle Dub ... CD
Dub Store (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A 70s dub masterpiece – and one of the records that really set the standard for the genre! Producer Winston Riley first rose to reggae fame in the Techniques, but here he's a master of the instrumental mode – working with a group of all-star musicians at Harry J's and King Tubby's Studio – all to craft these spare, bassy grooves that are completely out of sight! There's a sense of understatement here that separates the music from later dub work – and the record's a great reminder that sometimes less is more – especially when it comes to exploring the deeper sides of the sonic spectrum. Titles include "Chalist Dub", "Staga Dub", "Dread Dub", "Mistry Maker Dub", "Red Gold & Green Dub", "Peace & Love Dub", and "Who Is The Dub". CD

✨✧ King TubbyDub From The Roots ... LP
Live & Love, 1974. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Wicked dub from mighty King Tubby – a set of reworked sounds from cuts by Jackie Edwards, Johnny Clarke, John Holt, Horace Andy, and others – all given some heavy-bottomed touches by Tubby! The tracks are all instrumentals, with plenty of bass bubbling in an echoey pit – mixed with organ, drums, and especially nice guitar that often glides out highest in the mix – with a slightly cleaner feel than other instrumentation. Titles include "Double Cross", "African Roots", "Iyahta", "Dub From The Roots", "Hijack The Barber", "Invasion", and "Dub Of A Woman". LP, Vinyl record album

Clocktower, 1975. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
If you're looking for a definition of dub, this album may well be it – and it's clear proof why Tubby could proudly wear the crown of a King! The set's beautifully bassy and muddy all the way through – a heady brew of bottom-level sounds – all layered wonderfully with lots and lots of echo – light guitar, bass, and drums tripping along with a sound that's as powerful today as it was back in the 70s! All tracks are instrumentals, and this LP version features 15 tracks in all – with cuts that include "Babylon Dub", "Send Me Dub", "In Love Dub", "Perfidia Dub", and "Soundtrack Dub".

✨✧ King Tubby & The AgrovatorsDubbing In The Back Yard ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Extremely hypnotic dub from King Tubbys & The Agrovators – and a record with a sound that's every bit as stripped-down and laidback as you might guess from the image on the cover! The approach here gets right to the core of instrumental dub – and tunes are very stark and spare – with a completely sublime focus on splashy drums and deeply rumbling bass – often with hardly any other elements to set things off! Bunny Lee produced the tracks with a very uncluttered approach – none of the heavy mixing that might have lead to more abstract version cuts – and just a heavy focus on the bad-stepping, slow-moving elements are the core. Titles include "Relaxing Mood", "Hot Weather", "Mountains Rain", "Hideaway", "Natural Glow", "Plantation Run", and "Summers Eve". LP, Vinyl record album

Here, Pablo's working with King Tubby at the controls – a magical pairing that sounds every bit as wonderful here as it did on a few of their other key classics – heavy rhythms with plenty of bass, lots of echo in the dubby production, and those spooky, long-spun, blown-keyboard lines that made Poablo so unique! Titles include "Happy & Happy", "Sugar", "Uprising", "Smiling Faces", "Prince", "Watchful", "That's Real", and "Stars". CD

VariousFirehouse Revolution – King Tubby's Production In The Digital Era 1985 to 1989 ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), Mid 80s. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
While everyone else is focusing on the 70s, Pressure Sounds brings their reissues into the digital age with this great set of mid to late 80s tracks cut at Tubby's for the groundbreaking Firehouse label. Like the funky electro tracks coming out of NY and Detroit in the mid 80s, the best Jamaican producers were embracing the host of new electronic and digital sounds at their disposal, and crafting their own new brand of funky reggae, that would later become ragga. This compiulation is a nice set of tracks that are just now starting to become collector's items on the original singles, seminal tracks like Anthony Red Rose's "Temper", "Under Me Fat Thing" & "Two Big Bull Inna One Pen", Lloyd Hemming's "Rude Boy" & King Kong's "Babylon". 14 tracks in all!

VariousOnce Upon A Time At King Tubby's ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $18.99 21.99
Woah! Don't get caught in the crossfire! I Roy takes on Prince Jazzbo, and luckily for us, Tubby's not taking sides, cutting mad versions and heavy dubs as the two Dee Jays trade barbs, rhymes and witty rejoinders for a battle on wax that lasted quite a few rounds! This great set by Pressure Sounds not only documents the toasting, boasting and roasting fest that the two heavyweight mic wielders laid to wax across now sought-after 45s, it showcases Striker Lee's production talents and Tubby's well known dub wizardry. For the most part, rhythms are laid down by the Aggrovators, with a couple Jo Jo Hookim produced cuts by the Revolutionaries, but it's all fantastic material, and the set has great notes giving background on the whole battle. 15 tracks in all, including "Do You Love Me?" by Johnny Clarke, "Straight To Jazzbo's Head", "Padlock", "Jazzbo Have Fe Run" and "Straight To Derrick Morgan's Head" by I Roy, "Straight To I Roy's Head" and "Gal Boy I Roy" by Prince Jazzbo, "I Roy The Chiney Commer Around" by Derrick Morgan, and "Straight To I Roy's Big Mouth" and "The Roots Of Dub" by King Tubby & The Aggrovators.

✨✧ Augustus PabloAugustus Pablo At King Tubby's (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Attack/Radiation Roots (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Augustus Pablo at his trippy best – blowing the melodica over a host of sweet dubby rhythms all produced by Bunny Lee! In the hands of Pablo, the instrument seems like it was made to be used best in dub – as the "wind piano" has this sound that's as personal and mystical as the rhythms that give it support – blown by Agustus with this style that's very different from some of the more mainstream melodica modes – with a very improvisational approach, and a sound that expands and contracts in volume, depending on the lungpower used at each moment! Pablo's made plenty of great records in this mode, and this may well be one of the best – as you'll hear on cuts that include "Desire Dub", "Musical Pablo", "Barbwire Dub", "Maka", "Best Dub", "Foggy Pablo", "Rough Pablo", "A House Is Not A Dub", "Blind Dub", and "No Gesturing Pablo". CD also features two bonus tracks – "Ride Me Dub" and "Every Dub I Own". CD

Pressure Sounds (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A fantastic album of dub from the 70s – and one that's got as much mystery on its cover as it's got magic in the grooves! Despite the name of King Tubby on the front, the real genius at the controls is Pat Kelly – who's got a different, but equally wicked way with working up a track – in this case, backing tracks from Bunny Striker Lee, which are given all sorts of cool changes in the snare, echo on the core drum parts, and nicely spacey touches all around the edges – almost outer space dub, of a mode that would come on more strongly a few years later! Pat Kelly claimed a lot of influence from jazz, and you can definitely hear it in the snare – on titles that include "Earth Fear", "Tradition Skank", "Black Out", "Serious Rebellion", "Bad Man Skank", "Was Alive", "Gun Man From Water House", and "Babylon Red".

Nat BirchallTradition Disc In Dub – Nat Birchall Meets Al Breadwinner ... LP
Ancient Archive Of Sound (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $32.99
A fantastic album in the new dub tradition that UK saxophonist Nat Birchall has been exploring – recorded modes that are very different than his spiritual jazz albums, but equally cool overall! The vibe here is maybe like some lost date recorded at King Tubby's – but with more of a jazz element in the mix – as Birchall plays tenor and flute, plus piano, melodica, organ, bass, and percussion – all in this swirling mix that's created by Al Breadwinner – who's not only the producer and mixer, but adds in his own organ, drums, guitar, piano, melodica, and percussion! The group are joined by Vin Gordon – whose trombone is an excellent balance in the sound – and David Fullwood adds in some trumpet lines too, which furthers the jazz elements in the overall sound. Titles include "Hornsman Rock", "Dub In The Heavens (parts 1 & 2)", "Struggle Dub", "Organizer Version", "Olaudah Equiano Dub", "Giza Dub", and "Congo Drum Style".

Bunny Lee & OthersDreads Enter The Gates With Praise – The Mighty Striker Shoots The Hits ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... $13.99
A fantastic tribute to the studio genius of Bunny Lee – and a set that's filled with the kind of tracks that may well knock Lee Scratch Perry right out of the spotlight! Bunny already had a long and varied career in Jamaican music by the time of these tracks – hustling things up right from a grass roots level, then rising to prominence as a producer with a huge amount of inventive new techniques – including the flying cymbal rhythm sound, which was a great balance to some of the deeper, murkier elements in his grooves! These cuts are from a time when Bunny was working together with a host of fantastic singers, many of whom were inspired by the new more righteous modes that were coming into play at the time – opening up with deeper messages, and equally deep performances – in an array of tracks here that still have a tremendous amount of power, even after the space of decades – thanks in part to superb backings by The Aggrovators. The choice of tracks is wonderful, and the whole thing's put together with the usual stellar handling by Soul Jazz – with titles that include "Enter Into His Gates With Praise" by Johnny Clarke, "So Jah Se Dub" by The Aggrovators, "Magnum Force" by Vin Gordon & The Aggrovators, "Real Born African" by Jah Stitch, "King Tubby Dub" by King Tubby meets Tommy McCook & The Aggrovators, "Check Sister Jane" by Dillinger, "The Wormer" by Prince Jazzbo, "You Don't Care For Me" by The Uniques, "Natty Dread Have Ambition" by Shorty The President, "A Land Far Away" by Gene Rondo, "You Should Be Thankful" by Mighty Diamonds, "Marvelous Rocker" by Winston Wright, and "Principle & Dignity" by Jah Youth.

Beautiful sounds from the mighty Jacob Miller – material recorded with Augustus Pablo in the years before Miller went onto greater fame in Inner Circle – and with a rootsy vibe that's still extremely powerful all these many years later! Pablo's at the height of his talents here – able to hit just the best righteous modes, but without ever going over the top – at a level that seems completely effortless, and which really empowers the message in Miller's vocals! The set's overflowing with gems – and titles include "Keep On Knocking", "Each One Teach One", "Who Say Jah No Dread", "False Rasta", "Baby I Love You So", and "Girl Named Pat" – plus the dubs "Knocking Version", "Hungry Town Skank", "King Tubby Meet Rockers Uptown", "Jah Dread", "Each One Teach One Version", and "Girl Named Pat Version".

Linval Thompson/Big Joe/TrinityTrojan Roots Collection (I Love Marijuana/African Princess/Rock In The Ghetto/bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A trio of classic albums produced by Linval Thompson – with lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Linval's I Love Marijuana record – an album with a striking title – and a set that really marked the full promise of Linval Thompson in the 70s – a dubby classic that's every bit as strong on the vocal side of Thompson's skills, as it is the production side! The album was recorded at Tubby's with the Revolutionaries band and an uncredited Junjo Lawes (who would later go on to cut some of the best dub albums ever, with Scientist) – and the vocals have this great style of cresting between sweeter modes and more biting modes – particularly when wrapped around the social themes that always made Thompson stand out. Titles include "I Love Marijuana", "Don't Push Your Brother", "Dread Are the Controller", "The Children of the Ghetto", "Not Follow Fashion", and "Jamaican Colley Version". African Princess is a set that features great DJ vocals from Big Joe – one of the lesser-knowns of the time, but a voice that's perfect for the rich sense of flow that Linval Thompson brings to the production – on titles that include "African Princess", "Big Disgrace", "Tubby At The Controls", "Smoke Marijuana", "Love Can Conquer", and "Pauline Love The Natty". Rock In The Ghetto is classic 70s work from Trinity – a Jamaican deejay singer who gets some excellent help on the set from Linval Thompson! Thompson mixes dubby modes with some sharper, crispier crackles at key moments – working as a nice way of punctuation to the moods delivered by Trinity's vocals – which are almost always in the righteous modes you'd guess from the title. Tracks include "Dangerous Rockers & Ting", "Pope Paul Dead & Gone", "Don't Lose Me", "Life Is Not Easy", "Don't Lose Me", "Every Trick In The Book", "Freedom Style", and "Rock In The Ghetto". 2CD set features 10 bonus tracks – titles that include "Lover's Style" and "Come On Baby Dub Style" by The Roots Radics, "Follow My Heart (12" mix)" and "Pope Paul Dead & Gone (12" mix)" by Trinity, "Mr CID" by Barry Brown, "There's A Song" by Pat Kelly, "King Tubby's Rockers" and "Second Hand Girl" by Scientist & Roots Radics, and "Here With Me" by Linval Thompson.

The mighty Sly Dunbar, working here on drums, in some very heady company – a wicked dub-heavy group that includes longtime partner Robbie Shakespear on bass – plus Gladdy Anderson on piano, Ansel Collins on organ, and Bingy Bunny and Bo Peep on guitars! The music is raw and stripped-down – produced by Jah Thomas at Channel One, mixed by Prince Jammy at King Tubby's – but with a rock-solid vibe that grabs you musically in a way that all of these many references hardly do justice! At a time when Sly was breaking big in the mainstream, working on lots of imported productions too, the groove is still very down to earth, and back to the amazing sound that he and his confreres first brought to the Kingston scene much earlier in the 70s. All the songs are titled in tribute to intoxicating substances –and include "Marijuana", "Herb", "Collie", "Lambsbread", "Rizla", "Acapulco Gold", "Black Ash", "White Rum", "Cocaine", and "LSD".

Pressure Sounds (UK), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Essential! One wonders why when the original King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown album is so heavy, that you'd want another dub version, but one spin of this special reissue package and you'll be convinced. Altogether different dubs and versions of many of the same rhythm cuts as that watershed dub LP only prove that the whole concept of "versioning", and cutting multiple dubs of the same rhythms (usually to service selectors and sound systems who needed unique tracks) was pure genius on the part of Jamaican producers. Add that to the sheer weight of the rhythms used here, and you've got a formula for a potent set! Once again, the producers at Pressure Sounds have dug up some beautiful gems, finding unique versions of H. Swaby's melodica dancing over thundering Rockers' rhythms and taking a dip now and again in a bucket of reverb & echoplex. Insightful liner notes and a beautiful sleeve complete this package of 17 massive instrumental tracks, including "Black Gunn", "New Style", "El Rockers", "Skanking Easy", "Tribalist" and "Cassava Piece".

Scientist spins out on a dub-driven power boat – scanning the swamps to drive out the vampires and a host of other ghouls too – all while reinventing Jamaican music in the process! The record's filled with lots of cool electric elements – those weird production effects and electronic doodles that make the music of Scientist so revolutionary – especially when spun out over a still-familiar backdrop supplied by Roots Radics, with a core essence that's very much from the pre-digital world of Jamaican music. Rhythm tracks were done at Channel One, and Scientist mixed the set at King Tubbys – a host of dub mini-masterpieces that include "The Voodoo Curse", "Dance Of The Vampires", "Blood On His Lips", "Cry Of The Werewolf", "the Mummy's Shroud", "The Corpse Rises", "Night Of The Living Dead", "Your Teeth In My Neck", "Plague Of Zombies", and "Ghost Of Frankenstein".

Blood & Fire (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... $9.99
A classic compilation – and we can't get enough of Horace Andy's sweet falsetto keening over these chugging, fat rhythms! A tremendous set of sides Andy cut in the mid-70s, packaged together with a few of the cuts in dub versions – all from a period when Horace was really hitting new heights in his music. While Andy cut many seminal sides for Coxsonne Dodd's Studio One – this work, some of it in collaboration with the great Bunny Striker Lee, stands among his best – and also often features Horace with firm creative control. Here he reworks the Studio One classic "Skylarking" as a "Better Version" with Lee, and there's a number of pieces cut at Tubby's with the aid of Prince Jammy (who contributed a nice sound to the In the Light set, also issued by Blood & Fire), like the massive "Pure Ranking" in it's full 8+ minute 12" disco mix version. Also includes the "Dub Vibes" version of the title track, "Mr Bassie", and "Reggae Rhythm – It's Gone International". CD
