Includes foldout career map with a history of dub and comments on each track:
Track 1 : "...version of singer Cornell Campbell's "The Gordon Speaks".
Track 2: "The flip to an obscure 7" on the Micron Music Limited label by Third World singer Bunny Clarke, this takes Bobby Womack's Woman's Got To Have It song and sends it to hyperspace".
Track 3 : "...this time using Johnny Clarke's Rock With Me Baby to mash up the place".
Track 4 : "This mix of his legendary Bring The Couchie Come hymn to ganja is typically off-kilter".
Track 5 : "A mighty mix from producer Bunny Lee and engineer King Tubby, spending plenty of effort on changing the original song, Everybody Needs Money by Linval Thompson".
Track 6 : "A dubbed-up version of Junior Byles' massive hit Curly Locks".
Track 7 : "...his "Cry Tuff Dub Encounter" albums with his band The Arabs (this track is from Cry Tuff Dub Encounter Chapter IV) are regarded as classics".
Track 8 : "...created for the latter's Justice (2) label in Jamaica during the pair's mid-Seventies prime".
Track 9 : " King Tubby's console, mixing a version of "Everyday Wondering / Ire Feelings" rhythm laid at Channel One Recording Studio".
Track 10 : "...this is a weird version of Danny Hensworth's grim Mr. Money Man".
Track 11 : "A cut of Horace Andy's Better Collie, given an off its face mix from the decidely unstoned King Tubby".
Track 12 : "A mix of Dennis Brown's Wolf And Leopard, at least partly recorded at The Black Ark studio and given that unique Niney The Observer touch".
Track 13 : "The flip to Pat Simpson's "Too Bad Bull", a Lee Perry-produced single from 1974".
Track 14 : "The original song used as the basis for their mix is Travelling, by Debra Keese and The Black Five".
Track 15 : "A further song from Horace Andy's catalogue, Serious Thing, here rendered subtly psychdelic by King Tubby and Bunny Lee".
Track 16 : "One of several dub versions to Lee Perry's biggest hit of 1974, Leo Graham (2)'s Black Candle, and full of the creepy magic of Obeah, the Jamaican mystical religion".
