A classic King Tubby dub from '75 which features various tracks seen floating about on compilations over the years but have yet to have a home on one piece of wax. Loads of early classics here including reworks of cuts by the likes of Horace Andy and Johnny Clarke. All with that smoky, cavernous echo, fx and huge floor shaking basslines. Tune in, sit back, smoke out.

Dub… One of the finer things in life. I recall the day I got my student loan, heading straight out and picking up a King Tubby album, taking it back to the flat and getting mega-chonged…. So this valuable reissue of this 1975 release comes with an all round seal of approval from us lot. I can listen to this stuff all day long and get lost forever in the hypnotic smokey grooves and spacey reverb and delay. Tracks derived from cuts by Johnny Clarke, Jackie Edwards, Cornell Campbell, John Holt, Horace Andy, Ronnie Davis and The Uniques. So yeah this is wicked and the baselines will have you nodding your head like one of those dogs people have in the back of their cars. My missus doesn't like dub music because 'it's boring and it all sounds the same'. Buy on sight!!!!!
