Something slightly different. This is a list of 125 recommended dub albums which originally appeared in Black Echoes magazineb on July 16th 1977 in an article entitled "The Story of Dub, Part 2: Rubbin' the Dub".  The links to the article all appear to be dead now but the list is preserved on this page here.

 

The albums are ranked as follows:

1-20: Black Echoes Top 20 Dub Albums
21-35: Black Echoes Best of the Rest
36-125: Dubonic Dread ("The following are in no particular order of merit, but No's 36-70 are all regarded to be a fair selection of Dub goodies, whilst 71 onwards are merely worthwhile.")

Many thanks for this, I remember Black Echoes well, and I bought ,king tubby meets the rockers uptown when it came out, and I’ve still got it now

So way back in the day, I have The Heptones booked to play - their English backing band & I had a disagreement a while back, so they didn't show, but The Heptones did - a hurried conference stage-side resulted in them singing (through my mic) to all the versions that I had - several times - the crowd loved it (so did I, didn't have to pay for the gig - yay - win win !)
