Kirk Degiorgio digs into dub’s defining era, 1975-77, and draws tracks from King Tubby, the Revolutionaries, Joe Gibbs and more.

Welcome to another edition of Sound Obsession, where for two hours Kirk Degiorgio digs deep into his record collection toward whatever musical subject takes his fancy. This month we focus on the golden age of dub between the years 1975 and 1977, featuring music from the Aggravators, the Revolutionaries, Traffic Jam, Bim Sherman, Jacob Miller, Dr Alimantado, Pat Kelly, the Skatalites and, of course, King Tubby. Tune in to the dubs that shook the world from Kingston, Jamaica.
