King Tubby & Friends – “Dub Like Dirt ” – [Blood and Fire]

If the band Simply Red has made any significant contribution to music, then surely it’s through creating and financing the reggae reissue label Blood and Fire. Their 26th release returns once again to King Tubby’s studio, circa the mid-70′s, for some crucial roots dub. Featured here are dubs of vocal tracks from Horace Andy, Johnny Clarke, Cornell Campbell, and others, expertly mixed by King Tubby, Prince Jammy, and Prince Phillip Smart. This is classic dub: vocals drop in and out, special effects come crashing in out of nowhere, and drumbeats go ricocheting off into the stratosphere. The detailed liner notes give you all the information you need to create a mega- mix from various versions of these riddims. Dub go crazy!
