Label retrospectives are nothing unusual. If, however, a retro label now also receives a retrospective, then it is definitely worth a closer look. And this look is in the compilation "Dubbing at King Tubby's“(VP) from the Aggrovators actually necessary, because the title alone does not reveal what this is actually about. The first look belongs to the tracklist, which seems strangely familiar, the second look then goes into the detailed liner notes and reveals the secret of this compilation: It is the re-release of three Tubby compilations that Steve Barrow for his legendary reissue label Blood & Fire Records had put together - and at the same time a homage to the work of this important label, which started in 1994 to create roots reggae, Dub- and republish Deejay albums in as appreciative a manner as it was common for jazz editions and classical music. Steve Barrow spared no effort, traveled to Jamaica to dig for hidden treasures in Bunny Lee's archive (and those of other producers), documented reggae history with his well-founded and extensive liner notes, hired Kevin Metcalfe for the mastering and one with an intro of the best UK design studios for cover design. The effort was financed by the band Simply Red, who had enough money to support this selfless service to reggae. The result was around 130 high-quality publications - until Blood & Fire unfortunately had to close its doors in 2007. Since then, many of the albums are no longer available. So also "Dub Gone Crazy ","Dub Gone 2 Crazy "and"Dub Like Dirt ", those three compilations that are now under the title" Dubbing at King Tubby's “available again as a double CD. All three present Bunny Lee productions from the mid-1970s that Steve Barrow of Singel B-Sides collected together. In the liner notes, which retell the history of the label, Steve Barrow describes this process very vividly and humorously. Oh well, one thing should also be mentioned: In addition to the label history and reissue meta story, you can simply listen to very nice music here - remastered again by Kevin Metcalfe, by the way.
