2017 cardboard sleeve edition. There are very few individuals who command the respect of dub aficionados greater than "The Dubmaster" himself, King Tubby. On Tubby's venerable 1974 release Dub From The Roots, he introduces the "Shalom Dub", a method of mixing flying cymbals with horns in what he describes as "going in and out in a dub way". Borrowing from the 45s of Johnny Clarke, Jackie Edwards, Cornell Campbell, John Holt, and Horace Andy, King Tubby takes the listener on a journey through a vast array of different emotions, rhythms, and soundscapes. One of the standout cuts, "Iyahta" explores Tubby's use of deep electric basslines to evoke a melodic calmness in the listener, while "Mine Field" and "Hijack The Barber" bring the listener back with the cavernous echoes of stabbing guitars, horns, and cymbals.
