Of all my dub and reggae CD's -- and I have many -- DUB IT TO THE TOP has proven to be a TOP-player in my home. This is one of the absolute finest roots dub-reggae productions I have heard. The production sound of Yabby You combined with the dub mixing of the great King Tubby is really awesome.
The core of this release is a dub album of singer Michael Prophet from 1977, mixed by King Tubby, and the snatches of his vocals through the mix add a sweet and rasta-feeling vibe. The mix is organic-sounding, smooth and soothing yet very percussion-based. I guess it's hard to describe -- all I know is I have played this consistently ever since I got it, as much as any other CD I own. Only caveat is the presence of syndrums on a few tracks -- but you get used to it.
If you love roots music, great spiritual vibes, deep dub mixes, muted horns, you will love this. Plus there are a few DJ interludes, and the great tenor Sax of Tommy McCook on a couple of tracks... a multifaceted package yet sounds of a piece. Great late at night. CD clocks in at over 66 min, and with the nice informative booklet you're getting full value for your cash. Could I more highly recommend it?!
