Customer Review

on 4 August 2014
i suppose this must rank as an oddity - a (quite fabulous) dub collection from a source not renowned for such. duke reid's label produced hit after ska/rocksteady hit in the late 60's, early 70's, many of which are instantly recognizable from the dub versions compiled here, and credited to tommy mccook and the supersonics, who were the 'house band'. as acommercial venture, no great emphasis seems to have been placed on the 'version', and for such a limited supply of dub material, the quality is extremely high, and serves as a great indicator of what was happening in the early days of dub. the 34 (22 from previous editions, and an extra 12 (making it totally complete?) tracks are hard to fault, as is the fact that the collection comes as a needledrop, which, to my mind (ears) adds an authentic touch/sound to proceedings.
not a gripe, as such, but a little accompanying information would enhance this package further (digital booklet?), as i imagine a brief history and a list of players would be of great interest to buyers. however, an hour and a half of crucial (and historically interesting) music for £4.49 is hard to argue with. essential for the dub oriented.
