04/04/2021: “Carefree Dub” by King Tubby and The Aggrovators

The rich, warm tones of King Tubby are unmistakable. The pulsing bassline provides a solid foundation for the track, but the melodic power of the track is undeniable.

The organ stabs offer a light touch, while the dense textures of the guitar skanks and cavernous drums fill the space.

This is dub reggae at its best. If you appreciate texture in sound, then you’ll be blown away by King Tubby’s genius at the mixing desk.

The song is based on “Carefree Girl”, a 1975 song by the Mighty Diamonds.

“Carefree Dub” appears on Shalom Dub, released in 1975.
