King Tubby's Prophesy of Dub-LP

Postby fold'em » Wed Dec 08, 2004 11:27 pm

Hello, can someone enlighten me?
I bought this record with the white sleeve the last week
http://xraymusic.co.uk/pictures/thumbnails/prophesy_lab.jpg
And I noticed on the xraymusic-site there is another album called King Tubby's Prophecies of dub, but with this sleeve http://xraymusic.co.uk/pictures/thumbnails/propecies.jpg
Is it the same tracks on the albums, whats the difference expect from the covers?
Thanks for the info if someone can help me.

Fold'em,

Don't know about the blank sleeve one you've bought, and the only thing I remember about the blue covered one are some Delroy Wilson dubs - can't remember which ones exactly. I can ask a friend about the blue one, if so.

If I may,,,,not familiar with xray music - Are these reissues? If so, what's the pressing quality like? Did it say these are on the 'Presitge' label?

no I don't think it is a reissue, if you check this link and scroll down 2/3 of the page there is some more info. The LP contains the same tracks as the BAF reissue (except from the bonus tracks of course).

No my copy is not on the Prestige label, and the pressing quality is nice.
The thing is that I saw the track list somewhere on the internet for the "blue album" (can't remeber where though), and it was totally different from the tracklist on the xraymusic-site if I remember it correct.

This is a question that was answered fully on the old forum.

What a shame that we can't now search that archive.

Will it be available again I wonder....

According to the sleevenotes on Yabby U's "King Tubby's Prophesy Of Dub" (http://www.bloodandfire.co.uk/cds/sleeves/bafcd005.pdf), the "Prophecies of Dub" LP is a completely different album issued in 1976 and mixed by Pat Kelly at King Tubby's (check page 2 on the link above).
