King Tubby – “Hometown Hi-Fi Dubplate Specials 1975-1979”

I just don’t have the words to really describe dub albums.  I even read a book on dub recently, Dub:  Soundscapes & Shattered Songs in Jamaican Reggae by Michael E. Veal, and though it helped me understand the roots of the genre, I still can’t effectively talk about it.  I simply know what I like, and I know I like dub and that Hometown Hi-Fi Dubplate Specials 1975-1979 has some great chill music on it.  Are you new to dub and want to check it out?  This is as good a place to start as any.  King Tubby is one of the dub greats alongside Scientist and Lee “Scratch” Perry.  You can’t go wrong with any of these guys and their records will show you the way, mon.
