Dub Specialist is a ‘catch-all’ name that was basically used as a label for a series of dub releases that came out of Studio One and were produced Coxsone Dodd during the 1970s.
All the releases in the Dub Specialist series were issued in limited editions and were mixed and arranged by a collection of engineers like Scientist, Sylvan Morris, and others.
Bionic Dub was released in 1975, and features a minimal but striking cover showing a Steve (Bionic Man) Austin type character slamming his extended fist into the viewer’s face.
