King Tubby in no uncertain terms invented Dub. Born Osbourne Ruddock in Kingston in 1941. He grew up around High Holborn Street in central Kingston, before moving to the Waterhouse district in 1955. His electronic genius grew from working and fixing radios and TV sets, a natural progression led to working with amplifiers,and starting his own sound system’’ Tubby’s Home Town Hi- Fi’’. A very competitive game in the late 60’s. You were as good as the Exclusive records you played. Tubby discovered during his time cutting discs for Duke Reid’s Treasure Isle set up, that by dropping vocals / instruments in and out of the backing tracks, you could invent new versions of existing old tunes. These early versions tried and tested on his sound system went down so well that he invested in a four track mixing console, that was being sold from Dynamic Studios in Kingston. With his vast knowledge of electric’s, he rewired the existing console with delay echo effects, sliders and phasing units and so began King Tubby’s Studio Of Dub at 18 Drummlie Avenue, Kingston 11, Jamaica... His Home..... This is where all the producers would bring their tracks for Tubby to put his magic over. Most tracks that came out in Jamaica from here on in would carry a ‘Version’ on its B-side more than likely a Tubby dub. One of the producers who used him the most was Bunny Striker Lee, who’s labels Jackpot, Justice and Attack all carried Tubby’s mixes / versions on their flip sides. Our collection here, are all taken from the original master tapes you might have have heard the tracks before but not these versions.... Lost in the vaults till now. So sit back and enjoy the dub master at work.
