King Tubby & Friends: The Rod of Correction Showcase

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Qa'id Jacobs
King Tubby & Friends: Rod of Correction Showcase features tracks recorded from 1974 to 1979. What makes this collection of songs significant is the fact that all the tracks bear the seal of King Tubby. Not only did Tubby engineer all these songs, but he mixed them as well. Also, he and the Aggrovators provided much of the instrumental backing. Despite the presence of many reggae heavyweights, including Augustus Pablo, Touter, Scully, Brad Osbourne, Tommy McCook, Bobby Ellis, Chinna Smith, and Ronald Robinson, it's the Aggrovators that really stand out here. Consisting of Carlton Barrett, Sly Dunbar, Carlton "Santa" Davis, Robbie Shakespeare, Aston Barrett, and Tony ...

King Tubby & Friends: Rod of Correction Showcase features tracks recorded from 1974 to 1979. What makes this collection of songs significant is the fact that all the tracks bear the seal of King Tubby. Not only did Tubby engineer all these songs, but he mixed them as well. Also, he and the Aggrovators provided much of the instrumental backing. Despite the presence of many reggae heavyweights, including Augustus Pablo, Touter, Scully, Brad Osbourne, Tommy McCook, Bobby Ellis, Chinna Smith, and Ronald Robinson, it's the Aggrovators that really stand out here. Consisting of Carlton Barrett, Sly Dunbar, Carlton "Santa" Davis, Robbie Shakespeare, Aston Barrett, and Tony Chin, the Aggrovators maintained melodically interesting rhythms that were frighteningly steady. Unlike many groups playing Jamaican music at the time, the bands featured on this collection were not influenced by American and British pop music. More often than not, the tempos were higher -- closer to the danceable side of things. A testament to the power and might of the Rastafarian god, "Jah Jah the Conqueror" is a rhythmic juggernaut, featuring the vocals of Linval Thompson and the instrumental support of the Aggrovators. Other standout tracks on this compilation are "Dub of Rights" and "Brother Marcus Dub," which treat the listener to the silken vocals of Johnny Clarke. One of the least inspiring tracks is Pablo's "Forever"; although a fairly bouncy tune, it has an excessive lightness to it that makes it less compelling. Overall, though, this is an excellent collection of songs, and a shining example of King Tubby's golden touch.
