The B side of a Reggae record is usually where you will find the dub, or a version. In Augustus Pablo's case, on this 45, the dub - "King Tubby Meets The Rockers Up Town" - was so mighty Island flipped it and put it on the A side. This was the dub that got me hooked on Reggae.
On the B side Jacob Miller sings the original (or is it the original? because invariably, where Reggae is concerned, there is always another version). And it is every bit as mighty.
Sorry about the stuttering start. What was I thinking about 30 something years ago when I put this in a poly lined cardboard sleeve and sellotaped the top edges in an attempt to protect the record from card scuffs?
Off to a houseparty in a few minutes. Unfortunately I doubt there will be much, if any, Reggae played. This will keep me going though...
Mostly vinyl, mostly a private pleasure - until now.
Music posted here I have bought and gained much pleasure from listening to down the years (or months, or days!). So in the spirit of an 'all back to mine' it's time to share it.
