Product Description

Born out of Jamaican musical culture, and formed in the nexus between studio and dancehall, dub has influenced modern dance music in all its forms. Dub originated in the 1960s, when King Tubby began mixing dubs and adding delay and reverb effects. This set in motion a formula that would last through the 1970s and beyond. 'The Rough Guide To Dub' portrays the original impetus of the form, as developed by the original dubmaster King Tubby during the genre's first 'golden age', and features essential mixes from his contemporaries Errol 'ET' Thompson, Yabby You and Lee Perry.

Like so many of the Rough Guide series, this is about as good as it gets. Great notes in the booklet, great historic tracks, lovely-y-y-y-y (echo joke).

By Young Gunner on 14 Dec. 2012
Format: Audio CD
Expertly curated by the master himself, Steve Barrow, this could almost be another addition to the mighty Blood & Fire catalogue of classic reggae re-issues. With informative sleeve notes and a detailed track-by-track commentary this is an excellent overview of the golden era of the sub-genre and is highly recommended for both the novice and the experienced Dub Reggae listener. Emphasis is on heavy on King Tubby's output, as it should be, but there are also mixes by Errol Thompson, Prince Jammy and Lee Perry among others. Essential!

A pretty good mix... 23 Aug. 2005
By Yohanes Fikre-Selassie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
But if I were introducing a friend to dub, I'd just get him a CD from the Blood & Fire label, like "Dub Gone Crazy: The Evolution of Dub at King Tubby's 1975-1977" or "Heavyweight Dub/Killer Dub."

Perhaps this CD is best used, in conjunction with the "Rough Guide to Reggae" book, as a buyer's reference guide.

good relaxing background music 22 Nov. 2011
By Brian Maitland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Not a fan at all of reggae (more into '80s Brit ska like the Specials, Selector, Madness and the Beat) but once the Clash did a dub reggae song, I was sold.

So that's where I'm coming from in reviewing this so bear with me if you are a Jamaicanophile. The dub on this stuff is the real stuff and the echo effects are fantastic. The whole CD makes you feel as if you are in a dance hall in Kingston.

The usual Rough Guide notes filled in the blanks in my knowledge. If you must get one CD on dub, I'd say pick this up and go from there.

Dub collection for the new fan and the avid one 15 Aug. 2005
By The Upsetter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a great collection from all of the big names of dub. I'm a huge reggae fan, but only own a handfull of full dub discs. This one has a nice variety of styles and moods. A lot of folks, that I know, who are new to the dub world often have issues with the 8 to 10 minute track lengths. Most cuts on here are actually pretty short (by dub standards), so it should be easily tolerated by anyone that likes good music.
