Product Description

Born out of Jamaican musical culture, and formed in the nexus between studio and dancehall, dub has influenced modern dance music in all its forms. Dub originated in the 1960s, when King Tubby began mixing dubs and adding delay and reverb effects. This set in motion a formula that would last through the 1970s and beyond. The Rough Guide To Dub portrays the original impetus of the form, as developed by the original dubmaster King Tubby during the genre’s first Golden Age, and features essential mixes from his contemporaries Errol ‘ET’ Thompson, Yabby You and Lee Perry.

Dub got its name from the Jamaican practice of taking instrumental mixes of popular songs and using them as B-sides or special for-DJ-only releases. Presupposing and influencing modern electronic dance music and its interest in remixes by 25 years, famed producers like King Tubby did these primordial mixes in the 1970s of rock steady and reggae tracks, adding cavernous echo, heavy reverb and surreal bits of sound that often had a wildly psychedelic effect. This music just seemed heavier and weirder, particularly when King Tubby was manning the mixing board, than the original song with vocals ever could be, and the genre gained a following that remains to this day. Assembled by noted dub historian Steve Barrow, this vintage collection features 20 prime dubs from King Tubby, Prince Jammy, Yabby You and Lee Scratch Perry. As is usually the case with Rough Guide collections, the music here is typically available on other releases, but seldom will you find a better collection within the stated theme. --Tad Hendrickson

But if I were introducing a friend to dub, I'd just get him a CD from the Blood & Fire label, like "Dub Gone Crazy: The Evolution of Dub at King Tubby's 1975-1977" or "Heavyweight Dub/Killer Dub."

Perhaps this CD is best used, in conjunction with the "Rough Guide to Reggae" book, as a buyer's reference guide.

Not a fan at all of reggae (more into '80s Brit ska like the Specials, Selector, Madness and the Beat) but once the Clash did a dub reggae song, I was sold.

So that's where I'm coming from in reviewing this so bear with me if you are a Jamaicanophile. The dub on this stuff is the real stuff and the echo effects are fantastic. The whole CD makes you feel as if you are in a dance hall in Kingston.

The usual Rough Guide notes filled in the blanks in my knowledge. If you must get one CD on dub, I'd say pick this up and go from there.

This is a great collection from all of the big names of dub. I'm a huge reggae fan, but only own a handfull of full dub discs. This one has a nice variety of styles and moods. A lot of folks, that I know, who are new to the dub world often have issues with the 8 to 10 minute track lengths. Most cuts on here are actually pretty short (by dub standards), so it should be easily tolerated by anyone that likes good music.
