5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Introduction 7 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
King Tubby pioneered dub reggae and so left his mark on much of today's music.

There's hundreds of King Tubby CDs out there, some of them very dodgy packages featuring tired rythmns that somebody once waved in the general direction of Tubbs. A lot of them have been nowhere near King Tubby's mixing skills. This one is different.

There's a vast selection of tracks from some of his best known work such as "Roots of Dub" and "Meets the Upsetter at the Grass Roots of Dub". Much of this is King Tubby in his prime.

Fans will already have much if this elsewhere, but there are a few gems that were new to me. For newcomers to dub, this is probably the best possible introduction. Bargain priced, over 3 hours of music, good mastering and some damn hot rythmns.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gibby I agree 2 July 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Gibby's Ghost has summed this up so well that I have little to say other than I agree.What is nice about this set is the riddims covered span from the early rockers years (Aggrovators,Revolutionaries etc.) right through to the massive influence Tubby had on developing the early reggae dance hall sound (Radics).The bargain price for 3 Cds makes this an essential purchase for anyone first tasting dub reggae.Just play and try to remember which dub came from what original riddim. You might want to consider checking out some Johhny Clark,Gladiators,Cornell Campell,Dillinger, U-Roy and John Holt to give yourself a nice set of roots reggae that you can mix up inna yah own dance!It's a criminal shame that Tubby never lived to see the revival in his music which I predict will only get better.I have converted my 20 year old son to the riddims.True roots reggae music live on!

Noticed that Crucial Dub is in the Frequently bought together bit, it's actually one of the three CDs in Father Of Dub.

5.0 out of 5 stars Steven - North West Essx. 18 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First heard this being played in a shop I was browsing in in Freeport at Braintree Essex. Stayed in the shop longer than I needed to just to hear the next track before I finally asked the assistant what it was and then rushed home and bought it on Amazon, which was the cheapest place to purchase it! Have had it in the car ever since. At 54 years of age, I think I surprised the wife with my enjoyment of it!

By Vilson
Format:Audio CD
I love these CDs.
I bought them as the price was good and King Tubby is always consistently good. However I was surprised how good it was on listening.
No bad tracks but Hijack the Barber, Roots of Dub and Sinsemelia Dub are fabulous.
Note that the actual CDs are:
1. Crucial Dub
2. Dub Fever
3. Declaration of Dub
If I knew how good they were I would happily have paid much more!
P.S.The tracklisting is awry on Dub Fever, but at this price I'm not complaining!
