The Evolution Of Dub series has reached its seventh volume, this time focusing on the productions of Winston Edwards, cousin of Joe Gibbs. 'Natty Locks Dub', one of his productions from 1974, appears on CD for the very first time and 'King Tubby Meets The Upsetter At The Grass Roots Of Dub' and 'King Tubby Surrounded By The Dreads At The National Arena' were already well received at the time of their release (1974 and 1976) and are considered absolute classics in the genre today. 'King Tubby Surrounded By The Dreads At The National Arena' can't really be considered a full-fledged dub album though, as the track list also contains a number of original versions by obscure artists like Prince Heron and Tony Brevitt. In fact the album was a kind of studio evocation of a set King Tubby played at Kingston's National Arena in 1975. The final album in this box, 'Dub Conference', dates from the period after Edwards' emigration to the United Kingdom and is a collaboration with the devil-does-all of the English reggae scene, Dennis 'Blackbeard' Bovell. Those who've followed this series with some attention will no doubt add this box to their collection, but others might find Edwards' releases just a tad too obscure.
