8. King Tubby’s Meets Rockers Uptown Deluxe Box Set
King Tubby's Meets Rockers Uptown

Boston’s Get On Down Records is behind some of the coolest album reissues on the planet. In the past year they’ve put out the first Fat Boys album in a pizza box and re-released GZA’s Liquid Swords in a chess box. And check out what they did with Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. Making their first ventures into dub and reggae, the label also recently reissued King Tubby’s Meets Rockers Uptown and Lee Scratch Perry’s Blackboard Jungle Dub as deluxe box sets. The Blackboard Jungle Dub set is now sold out, but the triple-vinyl edition of Meets Rockers Uptown can be had for $25.
