LKJ's album "LKJ in Dub" is my number 1 all-time favorite dub album. It is uplifting, with memorable horn arrangements and melodies. Tired of the dubmaster vs. dubmaster cd's that all sound similar? Can't tell one dub song from another? This cd is for you! Yes, the songs on this album share a common style and sound, but it is not the typical echo-chamber/reverb drenched jam sessions. These works are coherent and arranged.

I wish they had added bonus tracks, as the album is relatively short. Perhaps the price should be lower given the short length. If you love dub, don't let this prevent you from getting a copy of this cd! It is said that the best acts play one song too few, not one song too many. This cd is perfect as is. Enjoy and Peace to all.

Possibly one of the most influential uk dub
albums of all time. LKJ is the dub of the classic 'forces of victory' & 'bass culture' by Linton Kwesi Johnson: dub poet. For those familiar with LKJ, if you dont already
own this album, you owe it to yourself to hear it at least once in your life. For those who don't, welcome to the era of dub poetry, LKJ and prehaps
Mutabarku are the biggest and best known exponents of the style - check LKJ's 'If I was a top notch poet' for more on dub poetry. It is hard to pick a favourite on this album it really is start to finish top dub, that said the dub of 'sonnys letter' always has a place in our hearts, 'peach dub' and 'shocking dub' are also classics. 'Nuff said! Get it.

This album has been in my life since 1980, and it keeps coming back. It is simple, but unbelievable. Great sound. These are the tracks that the Dennis Bovell band put behind LKJ's poems, but without the poems. Straight reggae backing tracks, sculpted a little and edited interestingly, but without ruining the beauty of the sounds themselves. Now, I really enjoy his albums with all the poetry a lot. But I came to them through this. Even when his poems are angry and bleak, there's a sense of uplift to them, and this record helps explain why that is. Fun, fun stuff.
