Boomkat Product Review:
**RSD exclusive release pairing vocals and dubs of this classic set for the first time** "The great MPLA album got its first release in 1976, the same year saw the release also of ‘Tapper Zukie In Dub’. A miss conception is that the ‘MPLA’ album is the vocal version of the dub album. But on closer inspection we see that only five of the rhythms correspond to both sets and new rhythms were added to make the In Dub set. The reasons were firstly to make it different to the M.P.L.A. album and secondly other rhythms were chosen at the time to enhance the dub set. ‘‘Well I was very impressed with the Joe Gibbs ‘Better Dub’ album that was out at the time and wanted to make a similar album that would be as strong as that. So I put the ‘Tapper In Dub’ album together as a 500 run album, so we could sell it on the tour we were doing in England in 1976 on the back of the M.P.L.A album. I added some new rhythms to some we had used on the M.P.L.A. album, as I thought they added something to it and would kinda make it run / sound tuffer” - Tapper Zukie. So for the first time we have put the vocal version alongside its dub counterpart to get a feeling of how they would have worked together in that context.The ‘M.P.L.A.’ sessions pull together the corresponding vocal cuts from the M.P.L.A. album and the Dub versions found on the ‘In Dub’ set and to add a little something nice to the dance and with Tapper’s consent, the dub cut to Marcus ‘Marcus Dub’ to ‘Make this set run also’. So sit back and enjoy where vocal meets version...Up Town!!!"
