I just ran through some of my favourite reggae and dub sides of the last year, and as mentioned in the post around a third of the vinyl was purchased from Tokyo`s Dub Store. With a physical shop located in Shinjuku, I`ll be honest, since I’m stuck out in the mountains, even without a global plague in full progress, most of my buying is done through their on-line site reggaerecord.com. Many a late night has been spent shifting through their new releases and vast archive – turning up gems – which if they don’t have in stock then are happy to source from goodness knows where.
The shop also has a treasure trove of `50s rock & roll, rockabilly, and r&b 45s, so they might, perhaps, be more accurately described as purveyors of high quality roots music full stop.
Below is a list of ten of Dub Store`s top releases kindly complied by the shop`s staff – A big thank you to Ichikawa-san.
