WWW, November 2008 - Singer Sugar Minott is said to be the Godfather of Rub a Dub. He is well represented in this Rub a Dub experience, together with a whole host of Reggae greats.

The 1980's marked a lot of changes for the Jamaican Music culture. As the Rockers slowed down and the studio's were able to get a fatter sound, a brand new style was born and it was called Rub a Dub style.

Today, it is both recognized as a form of early Dancehall Reggae but equally this style should not be considered as anything else but Roots Reggae.

In this Podcast, we explore especially the singers in Rub a Dub. Singers like Sugar Minott, who is said to be the godfather of the genre. Singers like Barrington Levy, Dennis Brown and Cornell Campbell.

A few Dub versions as well as a couple of DJ tracks complete a great, great excursion into some really crucial material from that time in which the studio's went from almost completely analogue to almost completely digital.
