Glen Brown & King Tubby - Termination Dub


Glen Brown & King Tubby - Termination Dub
Label: Blood And Fire, 1996
Record date: 1973-79
Album style: Dub, Lee Library, Reggae, Roots, Tubby

Glen Brown is one of the unsung heroes of Jamaican music. He began as a singer in the 60's, developed his skill as a melodica player, and then made his indelible mark as a producer in the 70's. His forte was the rhythm. Not the bouncing, melodic bass of Studio One, but the heavy pounding rhythms ideally suited to the era of Rasta militance. Typically he would develop a new rhythm, make umpteen cuts with various singers and DJs, hand them over to King Tubby for mixing, and then move on to the next one. He didn't have many rhythms, but boy were they good!
