There are two original photographs of King Tubby left. And we'll give them away at the end of the week! Take the best picture of the book you can (no direction, do whatever you want, be creative!), and post it on our page on Facebook:

The two pictures with the most "likes" by Thursday evening will get a free photograph.

Version française ci-dessous/French version below.

Photo Carol Dodd (all rights reserved): Coxsone (far right) and Scientist (middle).

Scientist is one of the greatest Jamaican Dub Masters. He's very famous for the Dubs he mixed while at Tubby's in the late 1970s. When we spoke about his experience for King Tubby- The Dub Master (DREAD Editions), he mentioned the fact that he was also involved with Coxsone Dodd, at Studio One, at the time. "Coxsone thought I was Tubby's spy," he laughed. As the book shows,...

Straight from the DREAD vaults, here's another rare and never seen before KING TUBBY picture!

The dub inventor and dub master is in the Ranch, the wooden hut outside the 18 Dromilly Avenue, in Waterhouse; and he's smiling (yes, he is! :D) in front of some brand new material. On the cardboard, we can read: 200D GENERATOR. And in the background, what really looks like a White Jesus pinned on the wall (is this Coxsone's calendar? )

This fantastic picture is not featured in our book, so it's a bonus! But you'll...

Thibault Ehrengardt raconte la petite histoire derrière la photo la plus iconique jamais parue dans Natty Dread, celle de Capleton entouré des membres de la David House, à Papine, Kingston, en 1999. Un premier voyage en Jamaïque, une première rencontre et une photo qui a partiellement contribué à changer la vie de celui qui l'a prise !

Actuellement visible en format papier peint (grandeur nature !) à l'expo Jamaica Insula qui vient de rouvrir ses portes à LE 106 (Rouen).

In 1999, I went to Jamaica for the fi...
