Sarah MacGregor Scientist is true to legend, he took Dub Reggae to a completely different level. Trained and mentored by the late, great, lamented King Tubby, he blew the scene into smithereens with his knowledge, skill and complete understanding of the mixing desk. King Tubby, Augustus Pablo, Prince Jammy, The Roots Radics, The Upsetters, To name but a few. The amount of sheer genius, raw talent that has come out of this tiny, little, Caribbean Island called Jamaica is unfathomable. Favorite track: Third Dangerous Match.

about

Bearing the legend "issued under exclusive licence for the world excluding North America by Hopetown Overton Brown", the surprise appearance on CD only of the four long unavailable and highly sought after Scientist dub albums originally issued by Greensleeves between 1981 and 1982 is sure to put a smile on the face of any fan of the man's mixing style. They arrive from the US in CD sized facsimiles of the original covers, with all credits apparently intact but all mention of their original label of issue expunged. The sound quality is excellent and the presentation is very good. Billed as "The Final King Tubby's Session" before young Scientist moved into a new position at the Channel One desk, this time the cover depicts Scientist punting a winner into the back of the net. No-one could apparently be bothered to come up with track titles, so its just "Ten Dangerous Matches". Still some great dubs though, especially the opening track, an epic skeletal dub to Johnny Osbourne's Love Is Universal that stands as one of the best Scientist mixes of them all. Osbourne's vocals appear throughout, as do those of Hugh Mundell and Wayne Jarrett. This release differs from the rest in the series by including six extra tracks.
