On this first installment in the four-volume series, the dub mixes are actually quite tame - they're unfailingly pleasant, but there are none of the challenging sonic gestures that characterized the work of colleagues like King Tubby and (especially) Lee "Scratch" Perry during the same period.
But as mood music, "Chapter 1" is a fine listening experience - note in particular "Campus Rock" (a dub version of Dennis Brown's "Let Me Live") and "Treasure Dub," which is a version of the Jamaicans' rocksteady classic "Ba Ba Boom." Recommended.
