    A MILESTONE LP. ESSENTIAL in all dub lovers collections.

    A real beauty of funky off-beat drumming , powerful bass and dynamic mixing by King Tubby infused with beautifull &v uplifting, yet dread riddims. A super-roots lp without doubt.

    These tracks don't sound like Lee Perry mixes in anyway (because they weren't) , though they were certainly recorded at the Black Ark.

    This is the best of the 3 lps by Winston Edwards at the time, but Natty Roots & Surrounded by Dreads (which has some vocal/dj cuts ) are also Superb LPS as well, and recommended.

            The bass on my copy is overpowering, is anyone else experiencing this? Wonder how it differs from the Jamaican version and the other UK version with the plain label!
