Bunny Lee Presents The Late Great King Tubby - The Legacy (2006)
Reggae | 4cd | EAC Rip | Flac + Cue + Log | covers
Jet Star UNITYCD0722 | rel: 2006 | 1970Mb

Bunny Lee and King Tubby are synonymous with Dub Reggae. Bunny Lee may not have been the first producer for whom Tubby remixed, but theirs was certainly the most fruitful partnership, with literally hundreds of singles released in the mid to late 70's. This compilation has the edge for me over other compilations featuring Bunny Lee/King Tubby material (like the 3-CD "Father Of Dub" boxset), because within it are four complete original seventies albums. True, the tracklistings are scattered about a bit, but with a little research you can compile the LPs "The Roots Of Dub", "Dub From The Roots" (both on CD 1), "Cookin" by Tommy McCook & The Aggrovators (12 tracks on CD 2) and "Showcase Vol.3" by Jackie Mittoo (first 10 tracks on CD 3). The rest adds up to another 2CDs worth of assorted tracks - great value.

Sean Paul - Full Frequency (2014)
Dancehall | 1cd | EAC Rip | Flac + Cue + Log | covers
VP/Atlantic 7567868383 | rel: 2014 | 390Mb

While his 2012 effort Tomahawk Technique recast dancehall singer Sean Paul as Jamaica's leading EDM artist, 2014's Full Frequency injects some hip-hop and Marley back into the mix, and all for the better. The Marley happens to be Bob's son "Junior Gong" Damian, a wise choice for some raw mashing it up and reclaiming reggae cred; cred which is certainly earned during their opening collaboration "Riot," a worthy "Welcome to Jamrock"-styled number with a trap music break in the middle and some infectious, streetwise spirit. Equally infectious is "Wickedest Style," where Paul offers a woozy, cloud rap-inspired follow-up to "Gimme the Light," with special guest Iggy Azalea rapping in some faux Jamaican patois ("Boy, what a gwan cuz you push pon my waist"), then there's Prince Royce winding it up with Paul on the twerpy and twerking highlight "Dangerous Ground," while dancehall singer Konshens joins for the bright, party starter "Want Dem All," an electro, "everyone in the pool!" number if ever there was one.

King Tubby meets Roots Radics - Dangerous Dub (1981)
Reggae | 1cd | EAC Rip | Flac + Cue + Log | covers
Greensleeves GREWCD229 | rel: 2001 | 295Mb

A collaboration between dub mixmaster/studio whiz King Tubby and dancehall tough Jah Screw, Dangerous Dub is a ten-track collection of some of the heaviest roots dub around. The two spent nights mixing tracks in King Tubby's studio located in the perilous, crime-rife ghetto of West Kingston -- hence the name Dangerous Dub. Pounding, mind-blowing basslines and supple guitar tracks are provided by studio mainstays Flabba Holt and Bingy Bunny, both of whom appear on countless reggae and dub recordings. They provide a nice balance to the rat-a-tat ratcheting sounds King Tubby is famous for. The best cut by far is "Hungry Belly Dub," a remake of the classic reggae standard "Bandulo." Also featuring the track "London Bridge Special," Dangerous Dub is a great introduction to dub at its finest. ~Allmusic

Augustus Pablo - King Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown (1976)
Reggae | 1cd | EAC Rip | Wv + Cue + Log | covers
Shanachie SH 1007 | rel: 1987 | 225Mb

If you had to pick one album that best represents the pinnacle of the art of dub, you'd cull the candidates down pretty quickly to ten or 12, and it would get very difficult after that. Few would fault you for ending up with this one, though, which stands as perhaps the finest collaboration between two of instrumental reggae's leading lights: producer and melodica player Augustus Pablo and legendary dub pioneer King Tubby. Among other gems, this album offers its title track -- a dub version of Jacob Miller's "Baby I Love You So" -- which is widely regarded as the finest example of dub ever recorded.

King Tubby and Friends - Dub Gone Crazy: The Evolution Of Dub at King Tubby's 1975-1979 (1994)
Reggae | 1cd | EAC Rip | Flac + Cue + Log | covers
Blood & Fire BAFCD 002 | rel: 1994 | 275Mb

The second release for new revival label Blood & Fire, again featuring some vintage Bunny Lee productions, this time dub instrumentals from the years 1975/9. All the tracks were mixed at King Tubby's studio in Kingston, either by the late dubmaster himself or one of three engineers who graduated in turn from Tubby's academy of dub on Drumlie Avenue with flying colours. Dub was then exploring brave new frontiers, soon reaching unparalleled heights of innovation and execution. Whilst its origins have recently been brought into question by certain elements of the reggae press, few would dispute that King Tubby was at the heart of its development.

VA - Firehouse Revolution: King Tubby's Productions in the Digital Era 1985-89 (2001)
Reggae | 1cd | EAC Rip | Flac + Cue + Log | covers
Pressure Sounds PSCD34 | rel: 2001 | 425Mb

King Tubby's name is invariably linked with his stunning seventies output. However, during the eighties Tubby went on from strength to strength when he rebuilt his Waterhouse studio in the heart of the Kingston ghetto. The area had more than earned its reputation as a catalyst for innovation and had produced many of Jamaica's finest vocalists and musicians. It also had a reputation for violence and unrest and the residents referred to it as 'Firehouse'.

Mano Negra - Patchanka
EAC+LOG+CUE | FLAC: 260 MB | Full Artwork: 56 MB | 5% Recovery Info
Label/Cat#: Virgin # 0777 7869202 | Country/Year: Europe 1991, 1988
Genre: Rock, World | Style: Alternative Rock, Ska, Punk

The debut from Mano Negra is more than a band wanting to be the Clash. It's the sound of a band becoming the Clash (it compresses all the musical sprawl of Sandinista! into a single disc), then going on to find their own sound, most especially with tracks like "Indios de Barcelona" and "Mala Vida," both of which would become staples of their repertoire. (...) But perhaps its most remarkable achievement is that in 1988, when acid house was rendering guitars obsolete all over Europe, Mano Negra could make such a vital record that made rock important again.

Horace Andy - The King Tubby Tapes (2002)
Reggae | 2cd | EAC Rip | Flac + Cue + Log | covers
Jet Star CRCD3070 | rel: 2002 | 565Mb

Lots of previously unreleased music from the seventies has emerged in recent years including recordings apparently retrieved from King Tubby's studio. Now here's a double-cd set from London-based Charm-Jet Star entitled "The King Tubby Tapes" featuring Horace Andy's minimal, proto-dancehall set "Pure Ranking" on CD1 and the accompanying dubs from Tubbys priceless archive on CD2. However, if you're looking for the great Tubb's signature sounds you won't find them here. The dubs gathered on disc two are mixed by one of King Tubby's apprentices, most likely Prince Jammy. On the production side of things the credits go to King Tubby, Brad Osborne and Horace Andy himself.
