King Tubby: 100% of Dub
Select Cuts, 2003
This compilation’s artwork leaves a lot to be desired, but the music’s great. In fact, it’s the best collection of King Tubby dubs I’ve heard since Dub & Fire’s Dub Gone Crazy and Dub Gone 2 Crazy. These tracks are versions, or dubs, of their original vocal counterparts. Tubby was a master at the mixing console, adding reverb here, dropping the vocal track there, and generally making these songs even more danceable. Whether you’re a seasoned dub listener, or just getting started, this is a solid buy.
