Yabby You – Deeper Roots: Dubplates and Rarities 1976-78

My jaw-dropped when the Pressure Sounds page loaded and this gem appeared. Yabby You and brethren serve up a set full of gems including Deep Roots obscurities and alternate mixes of some of his better-known material. My goodness! Grooves of pure gold! Here’s to hoping there’s more out there to be unearthed!


I actually wrote the above comment before even listening based simply on knowing the material would be an absolute treasure to my ears and, sure enough, it was! Listened to the set last night, “Thanks and Praise” (King Tubby dubplate) and “Fighting Dub” (Tommy McCook and King Tubby dubplate), to note just two, took me to the higher level in the same way nearly all of Yabby You’s material has done. Wicked vibrations!
