Thibault Ehrengardt's Natty Dread magazine was without doubt one of the best reggae magazines ever produced. Even if you didn't read French, it was well worth the price of admission for the presentation and the amazing layout and photographs. The last edition came out in 2010, but since then Ehrengardt has published a series of books on various Jamaican subjects, and now comes the long awaited Official Biography of the dub master King Tubby, first as a French language edition and now, thankfully an English edition. Featuring some fascinating period photographs courtesy of Tubby's widow Arleen Ruddock, and telling the man's story from his origins in Waterhouse, where he lived all his life in his mothers house famously situated at 18 Dromilly Avenue, to his tragic murder in1989, encompassing the events of his life, his interest in electronics, his ground-breaking sound system and his greatest contribution to the music world, both in Jamaica and in the rest of the world, dub. Just who was this enigmatic, secretive figure? He was not a rastafarian, nor did he smoke marijuana, and yet his approach to music birthed some of the most incredible records ever made. Ehrengardt's impressive book provides us with the most detailed examination yet of the man.
