What the press say:

This is one of two more splendid re-issues from Blood & Fire which outline the progress of Jamaican dub technique from its inception at the hands of genius engineer Osbourne Ruddock, aka King Tubby. The set comprises dub mixes Tubby did for producer Bertram Brown's Freedom Sounds label, featuring the Soul Syndicate session crew working with roots singers such as Prince Alla, Earl Zero and Philip Frazer, who must have counted themselves lucky to retain one or two lines on a track before Tubby completely revised the internal architecture of the music according to his own sense of space.
