The Skatalites (Meet King Tubby) - The Legendary Skatalites In Dub (1975)


RIP shout to Lloyd Knibb, drummer for dub/ska/rocksteady superheroes The Skatalites. dude was one of the funkiest, most innovative, and criminally underrated drummers of the 20th century, and helped to define the Jamaican ska backbeat. this versatile disc is one of my favorite dub records, with lots of jazz, soul, and funk grooves that will appeal to fans of those genres as well. of course the drumming is awesome, some of the breaks are just... sick, and King Tubby as usual holds it down behind the boards. highly rec'd.

    I love this. Could you post a short introduction to dub music? For example by posting albums newcomers won't find on their own?
