Thompson was issuing some excellent music during this period and a number of his best tracks are represented here, highlights include Africa In Dub (Anthony Johnson – Africa), Babylonian Dub (Linval Thompson – Six Babylon) and Roots Version (Cornell Campbell – Whenever You Need Me) the last one being more version than dub as the name suggests. Tracks of this caliber mean that any collection of dubs is bound to be a solid effort and this release certainly doesn’t disappoint.
The biggest gripe would have to be that it is almost impossible to read the excellent sleeve notes by David Katz. What is the point of going to the trouble of having these written and then reproducing them in such a tiny font that you need a magnifying glass to read them?
Boss Man’s Dub will be available on CD, there are no immediate plans for a vinyl issue.
