About this item

The market is saturated with albums of Bunny Lee produced dubs from King Tubby’s studio, with varying degrees of overlap, but now here comes a record of genuine rarities never compiled on album before. From the opening “Dub Gospel” to the closing “One And Only Dub” even seasoned dubheads will find themselves listening to music they never knew existed. (“Where you get dis one? Dis rare!!” - Bunny Lee, 5th October 2010) The cornerstone of the album consists of dub versions of 4 little-known Derrick Morgan tracks, “Teach My Daughter”, “Rasta Nah Fear”, “Under Heavy Manners” and “Pick Sense Out Of Nonsense”, plus his duet with Johnny Clarke on “Behold”. Livening up the mix are dubs to a brace of Ronnie Davis tunes (“Good News” and “That’s Life”) along with versions of “Oh Jah Forgive Me” and “One And Only Lover” from Cornell Campbell (who also plays bass on “Under Heavy Manners”). The set is rounded out with versions of tracks by Jackie Edwards, Johnny Clarke, John Holt and Joy White. Whilst the album concentrates heavily on the 1975 ‘flying cymbal’ style of Carlton ‘Santa’ Davis there is also one track from 1974 (“Golden Rule Dub”) plus a handful from the years 1976 to 1978, the highlight of which must be the instrumental workout “Going Home Dub” featuring blistering solos from Tommy McCook and Vin Gordon. Although some of the later tracks bear some of the characteristics more readily associated with Channel 1 Bunny Lee has confirmed that all were mixed at King Tubby’s.
