Impossibly good music, playable over and over again...and timeless, still sounds rock solid 40 years after its initial release. Two dub legends at the top of their game, making it sound totally effortless. A dub reggae masterpiece to own for life.

A shame this Jet Star release did not get remastered from the original master tapes but has instead been ripped straight from a vinyl copy, as you can hear numerous pops / clicks throughout should that bother you. I also have this album on King Tubby Meets The Upsetters 'Roots & Society' 1993 http://www.discogs.com/King-Tubby-Meets-Upsetters-Roots-Society/release/2636871 which itself is an unofficial pressing on the Ensoldun label run by the 'allegedly' notorious French bootlegger Enzo Hamilton but at least that pressing has the various pops / clicks cleaned up, although i think it uses the same audio source, as there is a slight hiss spike on the track 'African Roots' at 0:23 seconds just as there is on this Jet Star / Studio 16 release. Incidentally 'Roots & Society' did get another release in 2000 on Culture Press officially i think but that also uses the exact same audio source / mastering as the Ensoldun release, so until a better mastered pressing comes along hopefully via Trojan Records then your best bet would be to get this classic dub album 'Grass Roots Of Dub' on CD as the 'Roots & Society' release via Culture Press which has the bonus of four unrelated dub tracks or seek out an original vinyl copy on Fay Music
