Ruffer Version – At King Tubby's 1974 to 1978

CD (Item 491601) Trojan, Mid/Late 70s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



Sweet! We've said it before, but we don't mind repeating ourselves, we love Johnny Clarke's vocals, and this set collecting his mid to late 70s work for Bunny Lee compiles some of his greatest work. With Striker Lee handling production, you know it's a crack band – mostly the Aggrovators – dropping fierce rhythms, and King Tubby's handling the mixing desk, which sounds like a formula for success to us - and it is! 23 cuts, many with versions, including "None Shall Escape the Judgement", "Enter Into His Gates With Praise", "The Ruler (Cold I Up)", "Poor Marcus", "Peace & Love In The Ghetto" & "Blood Dunza". This set makes a nice companion to the also burning Dreader Dread set on Blood & Fire.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
