Carlton Patterson & King Tubby Black & White in Dub
- Words: Eric K. Arnold
- Label: Hot Pot
We should all know King Tubby-dub's founding father-by now. Carlton Patterson's a bit more obscure, unless you happened to be around Kingston, Jamaica's Waterhouse studio between the years of 1974 and 1982, when Patterson was producing artists like Barrington Levy and Horace Andy. Black & White in Dub collects 21 tracks from that era-all engineered by Tubby, with the exception of one King Jammy-mixed tune. Highlights include Ansel Collins' organ doodles on "Zone Dub" and Bobby Kalphat's Augustus Pablo-esque melodica on "Liberation Front." Worth checking for '70s roots collectors and Tubbyphiles, but skippable if you prefer updated variations on the dub theme.
