Speaking of Dub (the real kind), just over one year ago the music world lost one of its pioneers
in the realm of dub and roots. Vivian "Yabby You
" Jackson produced some of the most hard driving reggae ever released. RIP.
Yabby You, who earned his nickname from his famous Conquering Lion single (see link above), worked with some of the true legends of early reggae including "Horsemouth
(the second rasta, dancing outside the booth), Sly & Robbie
, and Tommy McCook
. And of course there was King Tubby
, who with Lee Scratch
was one of the originators of Dub music in the early 70s. The well goes deep.
