Fret not, rudie — giddying, solid-gold killers abound in this haul of Upsetters dub-plates and alternate mixes. Pablo’s here, Junior Murvin, Bucky Skank, History Of Captivity, Billie Jean… Towering, sick genius.

Super-heavyweight Family Man, Billie Jean business.
The dub is exclusive to this essential seven-inch.

Previously unreleased version of Junior Murvin’s False Teacher, with Augustus Pablo at the Black Ark. The flip is from a dubplate, and only otherwise available on this seven.

Fine late-70s dub LP recorded at Channel One: Sly and Robbie, Rad Brian on guitar, Bobby Kalphat and Ansell Collins keys, Tommy McCook and Herman Marquis horns. Phil Pratt and Errol T at the controls.

Tumping dubs recorded at Channel One, mixed at Tubbys. Sly and Robbie, Horsemouth, Chinna. Bobby Kalphat and full crew, kicking off with a deadly Real Rock version and never letting up.

Jah Upton joins Lloyd Barnes and Prince Douglas at the desk for another must-have Bullwackies dub set, originally released in 1977. From tapes recorded at Tubby’s with the Soul Syndicate band.

Classic! Evergreen Channel 1 rhythms dubbed to perfection. Re-cut straight from the original master tapes, in hand-silkscreened two-colour jackets, just like the JA original.

Top-notch 1976 dub LP from Channel One, extracted by Digikilller from the original tapes, and nattily sleeved. The set later voiced by the great I-Roy as Musical Shark Attack. Classic stuff.

Vintage Channel One dubs.

Scientist and Tubby at the desk; Jah Thomas at the mic.

Nice secret-weapon version of Baltimore.
