Heavyweight Dub Champion

Out Of Stock

CD

✈

It's easy to be the Dub Champion when you've got grooves this good – wonderful work brewed up at Channel One by the Roots Radics band, then reworked entirely by the mighty Scientist at the helm of King Tubby's studio! The talents here are all the best in the Jamaican underground of the time – and work together to forge a newly fresh approach to dub – one that takes the music far from just the b-side or alternate mix territory in which it started – into a realm that's really amazing, and opened up to a galaxy of new sounds, thanks to the studio talents of Scientist! There's a bit less electro touches than later on – but that also makes the record a great illustration of the place where Scientist started – the first of his classic albums from the time, with titles that include "Seconds Away", "Straight Left", "Upper Cut", "Kidney Punch", "Saved By The Bell", "Right Cross", "Jab", "One-Two", "Below The Belt", and "Knock Out".  © 1996-2020, 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.
