Various Artists The Rough Guide To Dub
- Words: Jesse Serwer
- Label: World Music Network
You need a Rough Guide to help you get through the Alps on $100, but do you need one to help you pick out dub records? Apparently so, as the travel guide continues its foray into music compilations with this sampler. Props go to compilation selector Steve Barrow for starting things off with Errol Thompson and Randy Chin‘s All Stars, a brilliant, somewhat unique commentary on music production that incorporates stage tech chatter into a take on Lloyd Parkes‘ "Ordinary Man." Overall, this compilation is a Tubby-dominated mixture that also features "Satta Dread Dub," an early Aggrovators dub by "Prince" Phillip Smart of HC&F Studio fame, a few Channel One mixes, and a pair of tunes from Prince Jammy.
