various: listen up! dub classics

Listen Up! compiles classic dub tracks, many from the hands of King Tubby. Welcome to the dub sound from Jamaica: although remembered as an early '70s phenomenon, the dub sound can be dated back as early as 1968. Vocal records were cut back to the bone with only bass and drums, and sometimes instruments and vocals faded in and out with echo and reverb to make a great new version. By the mid-seventies it became the norm for records to carry a "version" (dub) B-side and in fact many records were bought for this reason, especially if they were known to come from the hands of the dub master himself, King Tubby. Other tracks on this collection include Barry Brown's "Why Fight The Dub," produced by Bunny Lee; Tubby's "A Better Version," based on Horace Andy's "Better Collie"; and Don Carlos' "My Brethren In Dub."
