In 1970s Jamaica, Boris Gardiner enjoyed great success leading bands, issuing albums that mixed reggae, ska, soul and funk, and collaborating with the likes of Lee (Scratch) Perry and Herman Chin-Loy in their legendary studios and playing on hundreds of records. So many that he lost count. 

Following classics such as King Tubby’s "Dub From the Roots" and Augustus Pablo’s "King Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown", Miami-based Alty East’s Ultra Records took instrumentals Gardiner created for a run of 45s, and created and issued these "Ultra Super Dub" compilations. Dubbed out originals and JA renditions of songs by Otis Redding, Clarence Carter, Betty Wright, Jimmy “Bo” Horne and Ultra label-mate Frankie Zhivago Young. 

Released in tiny runs in handmade, silkscreened, paste-on covers, they have become some of the most sought after Jamaican albums. Now re-issued under Boris’ guidance, with a detailed booklet by Jeff Mao which delves into the deep scene which birthed these remarkable records, we can finally consider this all-but-unheard portion of this landmark musician’s career.
