One of the lushest, most melodic and engaging dub albums I've ever heard. This work should be distributed as essential dub/reggae alongside more well-know works. Not only is the horn and woodwind playing superb, but King Tubby's and Bunny Lee's contibritions to the recording process are innovative and effective. They add another dimension to an already solid foundation of intrumental songs: volume manipulations and echo effects applied selectively at points in these songs - to single tracks in the mix - provide texture, sonic depth, and bounce that couldn't otherwise be there with convential recording. Enjoy the punch of "The Dub Station" "The Height of Dub" and "Sparkling Dub" - they'll make you want to embrace summer heat, sip some rum, and throw yourself around the house (or dancefloor). And slow burners like "Collie Dub" and "Joy Soy Dub" are inviting for a stroll through the greenhouse or garden with a hand-rolled. Material like this brings out the crate-digging dub enthusiast in me. I was lucky enought to get my hands on this vinyl version after buying the CD on a whim. When I sold all my CDs at a sidewalk sale before moving last year (out of Crown Heights, Brooklyn USA), I was given serious props by a dreadlocked stranger who bought this particular CD from me. He couldn't believe I owned such an obscure and undeniably viable album. Bottom line, this is legit. Find it, buy it, live it.
