King Tubby

The Best Of...

CD £7.99

Release Date: 15/04/2016

Discs: 2

King Tubby's influence on the sound of Jamaican music has been nothing short of profound. After establishing his Tubby's Hometown Hi Fi sound system as one of the island's leading sets, the electrical engineer-turned-music maker proved pivotal developing the revolutionary 'dub' style that transformed the sound of reggae. Today, some 27 years after his tragic passing, he remains a revered and relevant figure in popular music, with no Jamaican music collection complete without at least one compilation of his works. This essential release, featuring 40 of his hardest dub mixes, is the fourth title in Trojan's recently launched value-for-money 2CD series highlighting the work of eight reggae greats.
