Dubbing for Jamaica,
This review is from: Dub (Audio CD)
You can't argue with 40 tracks for £5-£6. Anyone who possesses a number of dub compilations will find some of the usual stalwarts turning up, such as King Tubby's "A Better Version" and Tommy McCook's "Better Collie Dub". However, there are some dubs here that are new to me and they are stormers - especially King Tubby's "Dub of a Woman" and "A Truthful Dub". I am a little puzzled that in a collection entitled "Dub" about 25% of the tracks aren't. So, we have Cornell Campbell's (admittedly fine version of) "My Country", Gregory Isaacs' "Rock On / RockAway" & "No speech, No Language"etc. The compiler's rationale may be that the non-dub tracks are included because there are dubs based on them also included. I would suggest making this more obvious by consecutive sequencing of the source tracks and the dubs based on them. With such a bewildering variety of dubs or 'versions' it isn't always easy to work out what is based on what.
Still very much worth having, though....
