Pick a Dub is a 1974 album by Jamaican producer and musician Keith Hudson. Critically well received, it is widely regarded as an important work in the dub music genre which evolved out of reggae. Featuring remixes of earlier material, it focuses on heavy drums and bass guitar, with echoing vocals to underscore the intense percussive rhythm. Carlton and Aston Barrett and Augustus Pablo contributed music, while vocal fragments include Hudson, Horace Andy and Big Youth.
From liner notes: Track 1, "Pick A Dub", the riddim was previously used by Keith Hudson for "We Will Make It Up". Track 2, "Black heart" was originally used for "Fight On, Fight On" and "True To My Heart". Track 4, "Don't Move" is based on Keith Hudson's previously unreleased track "Be Still", a version of a song originally recorded in 1962 by Derrick Morgan. Tracks 7 and 18, "In The Rain", was first recorded by The Dramatics in 1972
In fact, coming as early as it did in the development of dub - it was originally released in 1974 - Pick a Dub is a seminal work, a landmark in progressive remixing on a par with early King Tubby, Augustus Pablo, and Rupie Edwards. What makes this record so scintillating is the intensity of the bass and drums, as well as Hudson's relatively naked production. There are not a lot of goofy sound effects and studio screwing around, just buckets of blood and sweat all rolled into a seductive slab of percussive heaviness that will rattle every filling in your head.
