King Tubby's The Roots Of Dub JR reissue

Postby TruthTown » Wed May 10, 2017 10:05 pm

Hi
I'm looking for a better (cleaner) copy of this album (mine is pretty worn), and I want a cheap one. I saw Jamaican Recordings label reissued it some years ago.
Any info about its sound quality? Knowing label's reputation, is this the real album?
Thanks

Ps: when I search in Google, I saw that a thread about this already exists in roots archives forum, but when I click, I realized that the page isn't working yet.

Thanks. Didnt see that. The fact is that I have a perfect copy of "Dub From The Roots", and don't want to pay another 30 € for the 2 sets. A good copy of "The Roots Of Dub" LP would be great. So, if the Jamaican Recordings reissue LP is the real album and has good sound, I would buy it (its very very cheap and has the OG artwork). Has anyone info about this? Thanks

The Jamaican Recordings release is the proper album in it's original mix. It doesn't sound as good as the Moll-Selekta, I seem to remember that it is remastered a bit rawer/harsher (I am not home to check), but I think it would be a perfectly acceptable alternativ, especially since it is readily available new.
