King Tubby the Dub Master, who's output was as prolific as it is sought after and
who's presence is surely missed.We would like to take you on another dub excursion.
This time through some essential cuts made for the Producer / DJ Tappa Zukie.
King Tubby always added something a little special to the tracks he worked on.
Producers would often bring their already tracks to his home studio at 18 Drummlie
Avenue, in the Kingston district of Waterhouse. The backing tracks which were laid
at various other studios around Kingston, like Channel 1 and Randy's Studio 17,
would then be voiced / Re - voiced at King Tubby's.

Tubby and his team which included Prince Jammy and Philip Smart would be left to
create the version cut. Having listened to the track it would be striped back to the
bone of bass and drums and rebuilt. Sprinkling his magic over the track by dropping
the bass in and out, adding echo and emphasising various elements of the song.

In some cases dubbing the cut into something unrecognisable from it's original sound.

The tracks would be aired on Tubby's Hometown Hi - Fi Sound System. Which acted
much like a pre-release for the record to gauge the crowds reaction, before the tracks
would be unleased on the public.

We think we have sourced another fine collection of Tubby Cuts [see also King Tubby's
Lost Treasures JR001], comprising of work with Mr Tappa Zukie. Lost cuts to some of
his own tracks like 'First Street Rock', alongside productions he undertook with the great
Prince Allah, Junior Ross and the Spears. Also the much overlooked vocal group Knowledge.
Some great rhythms, some great tracks, worked over by the reatest dub mixer of them all.

Hope you enjoy the set as muchas we have compiling it...

Respect Jah Floyd.
