An instrumental version of a reggae song often dubbed onto the B-side of a single. Sometimes DJs would rap or "toast" over top of these versions. Through the studio manipulation and experimentation of such figures as King Tubby, Augustus Pablo and Lee "Scratch" Perry this practice grew into the reggae subgenre known as dub.
"King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown," producer Augustus Pablo's version of Jacob Miller's "Baby I Love You So," is far superior to the original.
