Police & Thieves, pt. 3

The Upsetters – “Grumblin’ Dub” (1976)

This is basically a concerto for reggae bass, with hi-hat and weird organ sounds for accompaniment. Please listen with a good set of cans, or a nice big stereo. That bass! This is one of the better dub tracks out there. The choices are inspired: what instruments to fade in and out, when and where the echoey ghosts of the original show up. Nice work, Scratch.

Stay tuned for the rest of “Police & Thieves” weekend!
