Do you know any background info about this album Start the wiki. King Tubby born Osbourne Ruddock, January 28, 1941 February 6, 1989 was a Jamaican electronics and sound engineer, known primarily for his influence on the development of dub in the 1960s and 1970s. Tubby's innovative studio work, which saw him elevate the role of record producer to a creative height previously only reserved for composers and musicians, would prove to be highly influential across many genres of popular music.

Falling in line with studio pioneers like Lee Scratch Perry, Vincent Randy Chin, and Coxsonne Dodd, King Tubby took Jamaican reggae to new places by fragmenting the dub process further than his peers. Tubby separated the musical elements and their vocal counterparts radically, piecing them back together from the bass and drums upward, though sometimes leaving the rhythm as both skeleton and skin.
