"Termination Dub" for me with "Yabby U - King Tubby's Prophesy of Dub" being a close second.
Man, my thoughts exactly...
I'd have to say that I rank them like this.
Glen Brown & King Tubby - Termination Dub
--- just so many strong tracks, King Tubby in top form with such crucial riddims supplied by Brown!
Yabby U - King Tubby's Prophesy of Dub
--- This one fought a hard battle for 1st, but Termination had more consistantly good tracks. I think this one has a few songs that are better than anything on Termination, but not all of them. Yabby U, what can I say about you?!
Keith Hudson - Pick A Dub
--- Not quite as spot on as the Tubby mixes above, but the Michael Talbot Affair would make this worth the price alone. Several other top dubs too.
Tappa Zukie - Tappa Zukie In Dub
--- I guess this would go fourth? Dub Gone Crazies might actually rank above it.
King Tubby and Friends - Dub Gone Crazy
King Tubby & Prince Jammy - Dub Gone 2 Crazy
--- I think I didn't rank these quite as high since they didn't come from a single producer, but both have some very very nice tracks.
King Tubby - Freedom Sounds In Dub
--- Very good, just not quite as good as the Bunny Lee produced tracks on the Crazies.
Scientist - Dub In The Roots Tradition
--- Solid, just not as exciting as the Tubby stuff. This is Roots Radics, right? I respect but don't appreciate them as much.
