AllMusic Review by

Whether or not these "lost treasures" were mixed by King Tubby or not is debatable. Truthfully, they probably weren't, since they just don't sound like his work. Following his murder in 1989, several master tapes were "borrowed" from Tubby's studio, or at the very least, came up missing, and these tapes may well be the source for this recording. This is not to say that these dub mixes are bad, because actually they're really quite pleasant, and the sound is great, and no one will have wasted their money by getting this, unless, of course, you're a King Tubby collector. So, in the end, enter at your own risk.
