If you had to pick one album that best represents the pinnacle of the art of dub, you'd cull the candidates down pretty quickly Augustus Pablo - King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown ten or 12, and it would get very difficult after that. Few would fault you for ending up with this one, though, which stands as perhaps the finest collaboration between two of instrumental reggae's leading lights: producer and melodica player Augustus Pablo and legendary dub pioneer King Tubby.
Among other gems, this album offers its title track -- a dub version of Jacob Miller 's "Baby I Love You So" -- which is widely regarded as the finest example of dub ever recorded.
