Various Once Upon A Time At King Tubby's

17.99

A compilation of the most sought after dub records in history charting the competition and feud between dub legends I Roy and Prince Jazzbo featuring Johnny Clarke, the Revolutionaries, King Tubby, I Roy etc. Musical feuds and 'head' games are nothing new in Jamaican music: in fact the fierce rivalry involved between sound systems in keeping one step ahead of the opposition had given birth to the Kingston recording scene in the late fifties. There has been a long history of sniping, back biting and good (sometimes not so good) natured banter ever since.. much of which took place on record rather than off the record. Once Upon a Time at King Tubby's captures from start to finish the full story of the most well known, and certainly the wittiest, of all the wars of words that the highly competitive Kingston recording scene has ever produced. I Roy and Prince Jazzbo were the principal players aided and abetted along the way by an assorted bunch of onlookers and minor players who all helped the drama to unfold. Bunny 'Striker' Lee was the catalyst that started this schism and the producer of all but one of the tracks.
