"The vast majority of the tracks weren’t even mixed at Tubby's"
That might certainly be possible, maybe even probable yes.

Thanks for the heads-up. It's been awhile since i last heard this Dub LP.
Looks like it's time to get it out of storage and give it a spin again.

It has some trademarks of the Upsetter alright, but the year is more likely 1975 due to the soldering/welding lyrics.

The 'renaming' is most likely because these are different mixes.

posted a comment on Pat Francis* - Guys Get A Blow. 8 months ago
It's all personal opinion anyway of course, but to my ears there is no Upsetter connection audible on this track at all.
Also released as 'Natty Take Over' on the Lee Perry - Baffling Smoke Signal (The Upsetter Shop Volume 3) compilation.

I mistakenly remembered this album as the Dub companion to Jah Lloyd - Reggae Stick,
as they were released around the same time, sporting similar jackets.

Count Machuki audibly namechecks Jackie Mittoo around the 1'44 mark on Warfare.
