“Dylan songs as reggae is a natural fit.” - Billboard 

Last year you heard “Is It Rolling Bob? A Reggae Tribute To Bob Dylan.” Now prepare for Dylan dub-wise!
A phenomenal re-imagination of songs of America's most notable songwriter by some of the most
celebrated reggae musicians, this remarkable collection marries reggae stars like Toots Hibbert,
Beres Hammond, The Mighty Diamonds and Sizzla with Dylan material ranging from “Blowin' In The
Wind” to “Knockin' On Heaven's Door,” now in dub versions.

Dub is a Jamaican invention from the late 1960's, born from the efforts of a ground breaking engineer named King Tubby. These versions, dubbed by engineer Jim Fox and producer Doctor Dread, take on a whole new life as they grew from the vocal mix into spacey musical excursions. The album features a newly crafted, Dylan approved, dub remix of “I And I.” The song originally appears on Dylan's Infidels album, and features the legendary drum and bass duo Sly & Robbie. Says Sly Dunbar, “Doctor Dread really did a great job on this. We have now baptized Bob Dylan in dub.”
