Remarks In 1978 Jamaican popular music was dominated by the Rockers sound and artists like Burning Spear, Culture, The Congos, Big Youth, The Mighty Diamonds, Dillinger, Tapper Zukie, Lee Perry, The Ethiopians and Max Romeo had became cult heroes. During the Rockers era, which roughly took place from around 1975 to 1979, Reggae had gone international and the world discovered its unique vibe.
“The Small Axe Guide To Dub”, written by Jim Dooley, is the latest but certainly not the last book issued by Ray Hurford. The 200 pages paperback starts off with an extensive introduction, which begins with Jim Dooley stating:

“The aim of this book is to provide a good sampling rather than an exhaustive look at Dub. Given the sheer number of Dub albums (some of which are nearly impossible to find) a comprehensive look at the genre would require an undertaking many times the size of this one. Even by mid-1977 a Black Echoes writer could list some 125 Dub albums and arguably the heyday of Dub in Jamaica would go on for another five or six years.”
