2014 repress. 2011 release. Tappa Zukie's In Dub album must stand as one of the great dub releases to come out of Jamaica. Originally released in the mid 1970s, a time some say to be the finest period in reggae and especially dub. It still holds its own many years later, even though it comes from that golden period when the competition was great and plentiful. Tappa Zukie (b. David Sinclair, Kingston, Jamaica) had become producer Bunny "Striker" Lee's right-hand man within the later night recording sessions that took place in the 1970s. A session would almost not begin until Tappa was by his side, initially for security purposes, as Tappa had garnered great respect amongst the ghetto youth, but also gradually he began to take over the task of session organizer, making sure all was in place for the recordings to run smoothly. Being in such an advantageous position led to Tappa wanting to run and produce his own sessions. Tappa Zukie had already released his first single "Judge I O Lord" for producer Lloydie Slim using Bunny Lee's version of the "Drum Song" rhythm as its backdrop. Bunny Lee had also released Tappa's "Jah Is I Guiding Star" and a cut that Trojan would put out, "Knotty Woman No Cry." But it was his work through the late night sessions that had shown Tappa was ready to produce on his own. So working with eight rhythms, one being from producer Jo Jo Hoo Kim (which would become "M.P.L.A") and the other from producer Ossie Hibbert (soon to turn into "Pick Up the Rockers"), these would become the backbone to Tappa's In Dub album.
