KING TUBBY - Burn a Challawa

King Tubby -"Cool Down Version" from King Tubby's Special 73-78

King Tubby Yabby You in a track called "Jah Mercies" from the album "Time To Remember".

Flute played by Tommy McCook?

Easily one of the best instrumental versions ever.

This is a classic collection Dub, originally issued in 2003 on Select Cuts. Jamaican sound engineer and musical aesthete Osbourne Ruddock aka King Tubby is widely credited with being the original dub creator. The results of his experiments in the early and mid-1970s pervade all areas of contemporary dance music. King Tubby`s instrument was the mixing desk, and like jazz musicians before him, his passion was finding ways to make it do things that hadn`t been done before. King Tubby was an electronics genius,

King Tubby a.k.a. Osbourne Ruddock.#
Take 5 Dub....
Another great track to turn the volume switch up with.

King Tubby (dub-master) on the footplate . I'm sure he must have worked as fireman at Newton Heath late 60's...keep on dubbing

Tragically murdered in the early 1990s, Osbourne Ruddock (aka King Tubby) made a huge mark on music with his infectious lock-grooves and revolutionary production techniques. In this video, Mr. Tubby dubs up the Dave Brubeck Quartet standard 'Take 5' while machines, humans and insects oscillate wildly (as The Smiths might say)

Quick, rough demonstration of dub mixing, as pioneered by King Tubby's and the engineers working at his Dromily Avenue studio. tape echo, spring reverb, plus something special and secret...

'King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown' was a classic dub collaboration between Augustus Pablo and King Tubby. This arrangement for theremin is by Makmed the Miller. Although there is an 'untouchable' quality to classic tunes that makes them uncoverable, it's worth remembering that the tune itself was a dub remix of the original song 'Baby I Love You So' by Jacob Miller (no relation to Makmed).So it has a history of being 'touched'.
Makmed the Miller is a founder member

Kelvin lays down a little chat in the bathroom/voicing booth, and the great Scientist mixes a dub special. "Mixing's hard, man!" Scientist makes it look effortless. From the BBC documentary "Musical Roots"
