Looking for good dub compilations can be excruciating. But this two CD compilation has a lot on offer. Usual suspects out of King Tubby, and a range of the seventies masters of the art of dub. And the delightful weird such as Dennis Alcapone's Cassius Clay- a ska driven piece of gold. It is value for the brass spent getting it sent by fat pigeon from England to downtown inner west Sydney. Cheap as chips. Great soundtrack/mission statement for those hot summer days when all you can do is sit on the couch, count your medications and drink tea. Oh well, time to crank up the sound system, annoy the neighbours, bass boom birds out of the sky and enjoy fat sounds! More colly vicar!

I bought this because it was cheap and I was curious.There are a lot better compilations around, Run It Red on the old Blood and Fire label is still for me the best compilation around. For me the tracks chosen are just don't have that heavy bass sound I love about dub. The Dub: Bass Culture (three of them) were better compilations as are the The Essential ones on the Metro label. There are some good tracks on here, just not heavy enough.

If dub/reggae is your thing an absolutely essential purchase.
Possibly not 'heavy' enough for some people but none the less guaranteed to give your speakers a good workout.
40 Tracks on 2 cds ,top quality recordings and impossible to listen without a smile.Bargain.

this album is a steal at the price...there are no weak tracks thrown in to make up the numbers I was delighted when I recieved my copy and played it for the first time...I would not be surprised to see this for 25 notes in any specialist record store. don't think twice just get a copy before the price goes up

This is a great dub compilation. Some of the tracks are a little less dubbed and seem more standard reggae however.
Nothing wrong with that but maybe not as good in the dub sense as say, frontline dub ,40 heavyweight dub sounds. On virgin.

mid 70's mega speaker dark club dub.......very atmospheric...a hypnotic swirl of heavy bass led sounds.

King Tubby, Horace Andy, this is top notch dub, from back in the day. It zones me out of London traffic, as I bounce along... 9/10
