Back in 2003, Pink Floyd was honored with the reggae cover album "Dub Side of The Moon," which still has legs. Phish and the Clash's Joe Strummer have also gotten the dub treatment. And then an assembly of Baltimore and DC area musicians created Yellow Dubmarine, reworking the Beatles "Abbey Road" in a shuffling, bass-heavy, slow-skanking style. Horns feature prominently, reshaping iconic melody lines from the original album in different voicings. And the rhythms range from rock steady to ska, a testament to how malleable yet iconic the original Beatles material is. The eight-man reggae ensemble plays the entire "Abbey Dub" tribute to the Fab Four at the State Theatre this week.
