In Deep Root, the famous BBC reggae documentary series moderated by Mikey Dread, there is this most memorable scene:

Bunny Lee's crowded and "kinda clowdy" studio. After voicing several singers, Prince Jammy, wearing funky sunglasses and sweating like hell, starts to mix down a dub version. Everybody is excited, most of all Mr. Lee himself who starts to boogie in sheer extasy, until he lands on the floor in some kind of weird limbo pose. A dread passes through to deliver a heavily smoking chalwah to the exhausted Jammy. "Living dub version! Everybody tried to make Bunny happy, and the songs come in," Mikey Dread comments the scenery.

Track A2 is exactly the dub which Jammy was mixing in that scene. The Tunes by Junior Reid are exciting, sure, but just for that dub, in connection to that footage, this 12" is gold worth.
