Next issue in the set of official releases of the classic early eighties dub albums produced by King Tubby's young engineer Scientist at the controls. These albums have been unavailable in official form for many, many years, here they are released as double vinyl albums; the original Heavyweight Dub Champion on disc one, ingeniously coupled with a new compilation of all the vocal counterparts to the dub tracks on disc two, in this case sourced from recordings made by Barrington Levy. Scientist, to whom these albums were originally credited, mixes the Roots Radics backing tracks into dubwise oblivion, and the combination of the vocals is a masterstroke. Comes complete with a big fold-out poster!
