Osbourne Ruddock (28 January 1941 – 6 February 1989), better known as King Tubby, was a Jamaican sound engineer who greatly influenced the development of dub in the 1960s and 1970s. Tubby's innovative studio work, which saw him elevate the role of the mixing engineer to a creative fame previously only reserved for composers and musicians, would prove to be influential across many genres of popular music

Yabby U – King Tubby’s Prophecy of Dub (Blood & Fire, 1976). King Tubby puts 14 Yabby U cuts – Conquering Lion, Jah Vengeance and Rock Vibration – through the dub mangle. Herman Chin Loy – Aquarius Dub (Aquarius, 1973). One of the first ever dub recordings. Includes Jah Jah Dub (1), which preceded the more famous King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown version. Jah Rock from Aquarius Dub: Linton Kwesi Johnson – LKJ in Dub (Island, 1980). This is the only collaboration between Lee Perry and The Congos, but what an incredible album. Perry’s darkest production yet matched to the Congo’s spiritual, biblical imagery. King Tubby meets the (re-formed) Skatalites via Lee Perry with the addition of musicians like Augustus Pablo, Ras Michael, and Earl Chinna Smith with mesmerizing results. Twilight Circus – In Dub Volume 1 (M Records, 1995).

The first work of King Tubby. Originally released in 1975  . The Roots Of Dub. Лицензиар. WMG (от лица компании "Greensleeves"); CMRRA, AdRev Publishing, The Royalty Network (Publishing)" и другие авторские общества (1).
