WWW, May 2008 - Most historical Reggae documentaries seem to think that there's nothing interesting going on after 1979. This video is a welcome exception as we explore the early 1980's, when Rub a Dub was the thing!

The video opens up with Josey Wales chanting into Channel One's microphones, with Scientist at the Control Tower. This sets the right tone for this documentary, of which the video quality unfortunately isn't what we would love it to be.

The 25 minutes that follow the nice introduction give us an insight into the Jamaican dancehall during the Rub a Dub era. We see all the major DJ's from Yellowman to Toyan and everyone in between, live and direct.
