If so let me know...
Picked the album up a week ago, haven't stop playing it, excellent stuff.
Check out the Jacob Miller album 'Who Say Jah No Dread' that the dub version by Tubby comes from it's so good.
that it's one half vocals and one half dub versions, you really get sucked in to both vibes. Plus the vocal side is just as spaced as the dub side haha.
My mate recommended Chapter a Day.
will invistigate myself
really wish I had tbh, just know a bit here and there. Best dub I've ever heard is at the West Indian Center in Leeds when Iration Steppas kick off. They're insane, I've never felt bass like it anywhere.
It was re-released last year I think. The songs are long and for zoning out to!
I don't know if it's better than King Tubby.... though. Another really good Augustus Pablo one = East of the River Nile.
and was totally beguiled by it, it's as much psychadelia as it is dub.
I know what that means now, thanx wikipedia.
Dadawah is psychedelic sort of like Om is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dAXNBS2sEeg
but subsequent research makes me want to dig out my Count Ossie Tales of Mozambique LP, so thanks :D
keith hudson's 'playing it cool, playing it right'
pick a dub is also great.
kung fu meets the dragon, revolution dub etc. - mid '70s lee perry
+ augustus pablo ~ ital dud, i really like
yabby you, deliver me from my enemies (to some extent dub)/king tubby's prophecy of dub
oh yeh super ape's obviously brilliant.
ill have a look for that comp
I can find a whole LP of dub a bit draining at times, but I love compilations where you get the A side with vocals then the version one after the other.
Aswad - A New Chapter of Dub
King Tubby - Declaration of Dub
The problem is all these dub producers were so prolific its hard to get to grips with anything more than a few albums but Scientist is by far my favourite producer. Really recommend him
And if you don't mind a collection, Time Warp Dub Clash is an excellent compilation of old & new (well new for 1995 when it was released) dub tracks
my personal favourites pretty much all come from Black Ark though, get Arkology and just pick your artists...it's like the bible of roots.
Scientist Rids the World... Dubz from the higher regions by Iration Steppas and Far I Ship by Jah Shaka are all worth checking out as well.
& still no mention of Blackboard Jungle Dub?!?!?!?
