Scientist

I prefer the King Tubby mix of See A Man's Face, grittier and heavier:

Love both of those other two LPs. My favourite Scientist track from the Greensleeves LPs is from Meets The Space Invaders - Dematerialize:

Better to me than the original cut of it he did on 12", although the extended dub on the flip of this is pretty great, but not on YouTube:

The Scientist mix is a mix of a later cover of See A Man's Face - a different track basically. I did dig out the original vocal piece a while ago - cant recall who did it - and it isnt that great really - all the more reason why its a great dub!

Yes, a later inferior cut. Horace Andy's early cut is great, Neville Tate's version is the best by a long way :p

Got a bit of a thing for Scientist dubs to Johnny Osbourne vocals. What about the dub the He Can Surely Turn The Tide, titles Plague Of The Zombies on Scientist Rids The World Of The Evil Curse Of The Zombies

I've got a Scientist factoid: the name is not to do with science but means someone who does obeah/magic aka 'science', I guess the idea being he does magic via the desk.

I've been playing this one a lot this year (vocal and dub in the video)
