King Tubby’s – King at the Control
Tad’s Records

King Tubby's, front

Tad's label

..wanna get some harddubbing roots..? smokin’ pumpin’
rubbadub by the hardest of dem all ? King Tubby’s
went to England and made his islandsound in the
cold for a change, obscure record with blanco
backsleeve, on Tad’s records, if you know
a year of release, can ya tell us too ?
..gimme some feedback if it hits ya..

about the tracklist, label claims 5 numbers on
each side but b-side only has three. I am only guessing
that the longer track #8 is in fact numbers 8,9 and 10.


1 King tubby’s special
2 Tad’s special
3 Winter dub
4 Raving dub
5 Dread dub
6 Eastwood dub
7 General saint dub
8 Ranimo dub
– Dub up dub
– Nkrumah dub

    Thanks for this dittie, Moos. :)

    This post don’t appear on the main page, only found it via a direct post link via Bodega Pop. A search on your site finds it, too. Rather strange – maybe a dub conspiracy… ;)

    I’ve got a mp3 version that has 3 further tracks after yours, and it’s tagged 1981.

    thanks as always Moos
