Product Description

Within any musical style, there are a few select works that resonate so strongly with audiences that they come to define the genre itself, taking on a mythical quality that transforms the album into something greater than the sum of its individual parts. ... Meets Rockers Uptown , the 1976 collaboration between producer instrumentalist Augustos Pablo and visionary dub engineer Osbourne King Tubby Ruddock, is one of those historic releases. The album, which features Pablo playing melodica, clavinet, piano and organ, contains some of the greatest dub songs of all time, including Jacob Miller s Baby I Love You So , and the darkly seductive title track. The chemistry between Pablo s beautiful Far East signature sound and King Tubby s meticulous attention to sonic detail results in an album the Virgin Encyclopedia of Reggae says is regarded by many as one of the greatest dub albums of all time. Given an opportunity to explore a different avenue with this title for a vinyl issue, Get On Down took that opportunity and ran with it! The package for this very special edition reissue contains the full length album spread across three pieces of 10-inch vinyl, and a 16 page book, all housed in full colour hinged box secured with a magnetic clasp, in a style that will be familiar to anyone who snapped up G.O.D. s recent boxed repress of Lee Scratch Perry s Blackboard Jungle Dub . The label even went a step further with this release and sent the original version back to the audio labs to be painstakingly remastered a second time to ensure 100% flawless audio sound quality specifically for vinyl. This record has truly never sounded better, a definitive version of King Tubby and Augustos Pablo s historic collaboration. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

King Tubby Meets the Rockers Uptown - Vinyl
A lovely old school dubwise seeeelection from the daddy of dub.
No complaints, heavyweight vinyl and great sound quality.

My copy missed out track six on the A side, and and subsequently started the B side with the wrong title; as such both the cover sleeve and the vinyl itself is incorrectly labelled.

Of course this error doesn't detract from the music, in fact it brought a smile to my face

The rhythms are tightly constructed and Tubby is the master...
