First, light up a spliff, then sit down and suck in
this slice of dubbing adventure. Okay, now light up
another spliff, turn up the volumes of your stereo,
kick aside your furniture and experience some of
the best pounding dub beats ever made on earth.
It was 1981, a flock of spaceships entered the
London atmosphere. Hopeton Brown, better
known as Scientist was luckily around with
the Roots Radics to save the day. Tony
McDermott made the snapshot at a
perfect moment and captured our
young hero in full action.

..wanna get some harddubbing roots..? smokin’ pumpin’
rubbadub by the hardest of dem all ? King Tubby’s
went to England and made his islandsound in the
cold for a change, obscure record with blanco
backsleeve, on Tad’s records, if you know
a year of release, can ya tell us too ?
..gimme some feedback if it hits ya..
about the tracklist, label claims 5 numbers on
each side but b-side only has three. I am only guessing
that the longer track #8 is in fact numbers 8,9 and 10.

This is an ode to the late and great Style Scott.
“Something nice is gonna happen to your ears..”, that’s the text
on one of the samples used by Adrian Sherwood, the producer
of this wonderful On-U Sound label. Drummer Style Scott, famous
for his work with Roots Radics, Bunny Wailer, Prince Far-I,
Israel Vibration, Dub Syndicate, and Gregory Isaacs among others
was found dead at his home on october 9th. May he rest in peace.
Early eighties he joined Adrian Sherwood to play on his On-U Sound
label and stayed for many years. This is an album on which we can
hear his incredible skills as a reggae drummer, one of the early
On-U Sound lp’s we used to play a whole lot back in the days.
Circumstances around his death are unknown at
present but gunshots or explosions were heard
from his house in Manchester Parish…
Beware, this is heavy dub music.

Hear this ! In a much earlier stage, still in the beginning of the
old page back in 2008, I was asked to remove these here albums.
Greensleeves was re-releasing some of them and didn’t like me
to give them away. Now my buddy who owns a recordstore in
my hometown told me most of them are out of print at the time
being so I thought, “Good, let’s post them all again and see what
happens.” If you have a problem with either one, the way to protest
is using this disclaimer.
So happy reggae listeners, don’t miss out on these classic lp’s.
I love them piece by piece and want to share them with you all.
Early eighties, dub music was hot. There was Prince Jammy, Mad Professor,
Scientist. Less known names but just as good, Maxie and Barnabas,
Crucial Bunny and Mikey Dread, all masters in dub.
At King Tubby’s Studio, produced by Al Campbell, we find this
champion with Scientist, Maxie and Barnabas. Have you ever
seen a cover with so much impact ? These three dub the hard way.

Horace Swaby is his real name but we know him as ‘Augustus Pablo’.
He is the one that made a real grown-up instrument out of the ‘Melodica’.
Before him it was seen by many, being just a children’s toy, but if you
hear what Augustus shakes out of it, it changes your mind. Read the full
back cover story and find out more ! Click on image to enlarge.I don’t
know how many times I played this record, back in the 80’s, but it must
have been a thousand times, to me this is a classic. It is a collector
of ‘Augustus Pablo’s’ work in the seventies. A Killer !
