Upsetters Blackboard Jungle Dub different mix?

Postby bluejam62 » Mon Jan 16, 2017 4:54 pm

Hello people,

Delurking to ask - I have just read here - http://www.allmusic.com/album/upsetters-14-dub-blackboard-jungle-mw0000500683 that the version of 'Blackboard Jungle Dub' I own, which is the Trojan 'Dub Triptych' one, is an inferior mix to the original one, called 'Upsetters 14 Dub Blackboard Jungle', as reissued by Auralux.

Is this true? Should I buy the Auralux version?

Thanks in advance.

I don't think it is different mix, just better remastering. So, therefore the earlier Trojan release is inferior, I suppose.

The Auralux release has some interesting bonus tracks, not to be found anywhere else, so if you are a Upsetter completist I would recommend buying it.

Just got the Auralax edition, and the difference is that it's much bassier. The bass is groundshaking! Hard to believe that better mastering alone could make such a difference.
