About this item

Starting out as a typically loose On-U collective masterminded by Adrian Sherwood, Dub Syndicate evolved over time into a long term collaboration with the drummer Lincoln ‘Style’ Scott, a key member of the Roots Radics and Creation Rebel. This anthology documents their early years over five discs, featuring four bonus tracks from the original albums and an entire disc of unreleased dubs.

Also includes 24 page booklet with sleevenotes by Steve Barker (‘On The Wire’).
