Album: In Dub Vol. 1
There are surprisingly few dub versions of Bob Marley songs in circulation. Apart from the flip sides of Tuff Gong 45s, no official Marley dub album has ever been released. But back around 2000 a collection of 15 cuts known in certain circles as "The Blackwell Dubs" began to make the rounds among Marley collectors. Little is known about the release—which was finally gjve an official release in 2010 as In Dub Vol. 1—but there’s no doubt that the mystery dub mixer was working with Bob’s original multitrack recordings. This sublime mix of "Waiting In Vain" reveals the song's melodic beauty by stripping the original down to its essence then building the vibes back up to higher heights.
Original: Bob Marley & The Wailers "Waiting In Vain" (1977)
