Various Artists - King Tubbys presents Sound Clash Dub Plate Style 1 & 2 (Dub Store Records)

With 'King Tubbys presents Sound Clash Dub Plate Style 1 & 2', Dub Store Records presents a reissue of an iconic sound clash album from 1988 and its dub counterpart, mixed by the grand master himself: King Tubby! In the track list of the first album, killer tunes like Johnny Osbourne's 'Line Up', Gregory Isaacs' 'The Ruler', Sugar Minnott's 'Play Me' or the excellent 'Kill Ole Pan' by King Everald (a reggae version of Dionne Warwick's 'Do You Know The Way To San Jose'), but also a few gems by somewhat forgotten artists like Trevor Levy ('Nah Run From Clash'), Michael Bitas ('Die Yu Die') or Conroy Smith ('Original Sound'), each time skillfully introduced by Fuzzy Jones. The man, real name Alty Salmon, passed away after suffering a motorcycle accident in 2005, but in 2015 Kanye West still used his voice for 'Mercy', a sample taken from Super Beagle's 'Dust A Soundboy', one of the countless sound clash-tunes from the nineteen eighties for which Fuzzy provided the intro. Eighties classic!
