4.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny, 22 Sep 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trojan Dub Box Set (Audio CD)
This is a great intro to dub reggae music. If you love the 70's sound then you will love this (some say this was the peak era for reggae music and I agree) . Well done once again Trojan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trojan provides, again, 9 July 2001
This review is from: Trojan Dub Box Set (Audio CD)
Trojan continues they good form in there box sets with this first excursion into dub. The music, which has given so much to modern day music recording, in this box set shows the longevity that dub has. Having played this to my friends, they now all want a copy. With tracks from the undisputed king of dub, King Tubby, plus his protégé, The Scientist. Both using delay and reverb with the uppermost skill producing some heavy weight sounds. Tommy McCook provides the bouncer, lighter, horn sounds, along with the Sir Niney's Observers. It wouldn't be complete without an appearance form Lee Perry, this comes in the form of his Upsetters, proving that genius is. This box set, along with volume 2, is a must for anyone with a liking for reggae sounds. You won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dub's Got A Place In My Head, Man, 5 Sep 2000
This review is from: Trojan Dub Box Set (Audio CD)
Get your bass boost buttons at the ready! Covering the 1970s peak of dub over 3 CDs, this is Jamaican music in its purest form - limited vocals; punchy, funky basslines and effects a-plenty. Featuring some of the greatest names ever to sit at a mixing desk - Lee 'Scratch' Perry and his Upsetters, Gregory Issacs, King Tubby and Tommy McCook - the fifty tracks present here encompass the whole Jamaican dub spectrum. Instrumental B-Sides to reggae classics, one-off acetates and Rasta rhythms are all represented, with even the odd bit of comedy thrown in for good measure (c.f: the openings to Sly and The Revolutionaries startling dub plates). The only one criticism (and it is minor) is that the set isn't definitive, with the obvious lack of Augustus Pablo tracks somewhat affecting the release's overall potentcy. That said, if this box set doesn't get you grooving in your room or draw in the crowds as you test the bass threshold of your car stereo whilst driving through town, then heaven help you. A perfect and economic entry into the world of dub.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT INTRO TO DUB, 22 April 2008
By 
Angels 14 (Hampshire, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Trojan Dub Box Set (Audio CD)
This was the very first Trojan box set that I bought a few years ago, If I'm feeling a bit chilled out I always play this first. I really do love the tracks from the amazing Roots Radics band, but this is a very diverse compilation which I think is esential in your reggea collection. As the title to this review says: Great intro to dub.
