King Tubby, The Observer And The Aggrovators – King Tubby's Special 1973-1976. Dubbing With The Observer.
Disco Two: Dub tracks mixed by King Tubby & produced by Bunny Striker Lee, note that there is a jump found on the recording of 'Cool Down Version'.
King Tubby's approach to dub was always distinctive; his mixes are distinguished by a touch that is sweet sounding and endlessly creative, balancing innovation with respect for the original even during the most drastic deconstruction of a song. And unlike some other dub producers, Tubby generally left swatches of the vocal line in place, dropping it in and out of the mix and applying dirty analog echo, sometimes subtly changing the lyrical focus. This collection's unusually helpful liner notes will assist interested listeners in finding original versions of many of the tracks.
Disc: 2. 1. King Tubby's Special/U Roy. 2. Another Version. 3. Straight to Brad's Head from New York. Disc One presents an album Tubby mixed in 1973 using Niney productions as the raw materials. This is some of the earliest true dub and is not far removed from the original concept - that of placing the unadorned riddim track on the B-side. However, Tubby's mixing of the ride cymbal and guitar often literally tickles the ear, reminding me of a mosquito's buzz in tropical heat, and the bass is phased and brought up and down in the mix for dramatic effect.
