AllMusic Review by

Fighting Dub 1975-1979 is a collection issued on the Love label in 1975. The album's original mix was done by Errol "E.T." Thompson at Joe Gibbs' studio. Basically, these dubs were of Lloyd "Spiderman" Campbell's hits at the time, such as "Jacket" and "First Cut Is the Deepest." The album is expanded by eight bonus tracks of Campbell dub plate productions by the Revolutionaries (including Sly & Robbie), Jah Woosh, Vin Gordon with the Revolutionaries, and Skin, Flesh & Bones. While this is solid material, it's hardly imaginative and the compilation can be seen as essential only for the most die-hard reggaephiles.
