If you only ever own one dub record (if you only ever HEAR one dub record) make it this one! All star cast of musicians headed by Augustus Pablo, with a who's who of the best 70's musicians from Jamaica. Add to this the DEEPEST EVER dubs from the master, the originator, King Tubby (RIP), makes this a 'top ten of all time' record.

Recorded and mixed on a (I beleive) 4 track recorder and mixer, the tones on this LP are some of the best heard from _any_ studio. Tubby built his own EQ's and effects, and hand wound his own inductors for his filters.

Deep deep bass, tight springy drums, sharp guitars, and the evocative melodica of Pablo drifting in and out on waves of delay, mysterious ambience, cross-talk, reverb, and the tightest playing - all dubbed within an inch of its life by King Tubby.

A must have.
