    Seminal dub album produced by Winston Edwards.  In 1974 Edwards left Jamaica to reside in the UK and through his strong connections with such reggae luminaries as Joe Gibbs, Lee Perry and King Tubby began to travel back and forth between London and Kingston (JA) to bring back recordings to issue on his Fay Music label here in the UK.  In 1974 he released this controversial, seminal dub set, shunned by some at the time due to the spurious marketing device employed.  The whole album appears in fact to have been mixed at Tubby’s, while the rhythms were possibly built at Perry’s Ark and maybe Gibbs’ studio, but at this length memories are stretched.  Now of course, it sounds like what it is, a classic early Tubby’s dub album, musical, tuneful, heavy dubwise set with Vin Gordon’s unique trombone lines well to the fore.  Essential dub.
