What are some records to check out, basically?
Been meaning to check out dub for years but there's always so much jazz, kraut, psych, ez grooves, prog, folk etc in the way.
Stumbled upon a chapter on King Tubby in a book today though and it made me curious again.
From the few pieces I've encountered here and there throughout my life I deduce I want an early gritty sound with as much lo-fi analog sound experimentation as possible - ie. a really spaced out and/or druggy sound. It doesn't matter if weirdness takes precedence over the music - in fact it may be encouraged if it does.
So - I know nothing, I'm sure someone here could recommend some LPs or compilations that sound like they fit the bill and aren't impossible to find for not insane amounts of money (later presses are OK). Something I can try out and start with...
