Vocalist Jacob Miller, who was heavily influenced by Pablo, starts this episode off with "Baby I Love You So" followed by the dub version of said tune entitled "King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown." Both works can be found on the 'Easy Skanking' album. His album King Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown (1976) is often regarded as one of the most important examples of dub.<br><br>
Selections heard in this mix include quintessential tracks from classic albums 'Ital Dub,' 'East of the River Nile,' 'Java Java Dub,' and 'Valley Of Jehosaphat,' among others.<br><br>
Also listen out for Wayne Wonder in dubplate style singing over the Java riddim for Highlanda Sound, and the voice of SuperPEC on his exclusive "Mommy Dearest," for which he chose the "East of River Nile" instrumental in tribute to Pablo.
