"Fronted by 2 of reggae's most venerable sidemen, (drummer Sly Dunbar and bassist Robbie Shakespeare) the Revolutionaries were a conglomeration of many of reggae's finest studio musicians, brought together with producers ranging from legends like King Tubby and Prince Jammy, to lesser known ones, to create some of the finest dub of the late 70's."Black As Dub" is a wonderful example of the group at its peak. Sly's drumming prowice is at its best on this lp, complete with his famous crash cymbals on the 4th beat in 4/4 time versus the 1st beat. His skills are legendary due in large part to the bass playing of Robbie. His grooves are intense, yet very supple, and perfectly augment Sly's grooves. (Robbie also plays great lead guitar on this lp, as well.)With its 2 major club hits- "Marijuana" and "Cocain(e),", "Black Ash Dub" is a fine example of late 70's dub, and a wonderful addition to any fan of Sly and Robbie. Well worth the investment."
