2/4/2009 Echo Chamber

 

The Echo Chamber's annual *Tuff Gong Tubby Tribute* honoring Robert Nesta Marley (born 2/6/1945) and Osbourne Ruddock (died 2/6/1989). One man a legend the world round. The other, a legend in the reggae world, and a permanent influence upon recording studio techniques and technology. Of course, nearly all the tunes tonight were from Bob Marley the Wailers, or King Tubby productions. Of course we played some of Bob Marley's most famous tracks - like One Love / People Get Ready, Exodus, Simmer Down, and African Herbsman - but we also tried to include some intrumental versions and dubs. Among these were: Kaya (version), Rebels Hop (version), and Downpressor (version). And tonight we debuted the Dubmatix remix of Is This Love. Also included in tonight's show were excerpts from the Bob Marley 1973 interview with Neville Willoughby (as released on the So Much Things to Say album). Of course we also played plenty of Tubby dubs - including heavy-hitters like Crime Wave, I Am the King, and Hijack the Barber (aka Ali Baba). It was truly a fun, heavy, rootical show to do... One honoring two of reggae's legends.
