180g / Compilation Reissue / Made in UK / King Tubby’s Hometown Hi-Fi was one the great Sound Systems in Jamaica. It also proved a fantastic outlet for the Dub Plate Specials cut at Tubby’s studio, providing exclusive cuts to be played out and to incite the dance’s audience. The tracks at the time were mainly cut over producer Bunny Striker Lee rhythms, that Bunny stored at Tubby’s studio which was in fact his home, 18 Drumilly Avenue Kingston, Jamaica. The versions were given exclusive plays at Tubby’s sound before some finding their way on to vinyl, as the b-side version cut to it’s a-side vocal, proving so popular that the records were often brought for its version side over its vocal counterpart. King Tubby and Producer Bunny‘Striker Lee are intertwined in the birth of Dub Music, after discovering a mistake that made a serious joke, they went on to release the first pressings of this new musical genre namely Dub Music. Tubby’s vast knowledge of electronics and Bunny’s vast catalogue of rhythms would lay the foundations of what today is taken as a standard... the Remix / Version cuts to an existing vocal tune.
