Product Description

Over four years after his death, Augustus Pablo remains one of the most admired and influential reggae artists ever and the original version of this album, first released in 1976, is still considered to be monumentally important in the history and development of reggae, a landmark dub album that had huge impact on rock artists, remixers and electronica artists alike. This deluxe edition contains four rare bonus tracks recorded in the same period but never before available on album, plus extensive new notes and rare photographs, making this a true collector's item.

Format: Audio CD
This album has always stood out among the many dub albums issued in Jamaica between 1974 and the early 1980s. Not being part of the very first wave allowed a greater degree of sophistication to develop, and unlike many other dub albums, even from some years later, it is in quite obvious and creatively used stereo.

The rhythms used are mixture of old Studio One classics (Swing Easy, Satta Masagana), songs Pablo produced for the young Jacob Miller (notably the title track) and Pablo's own instrumentals. They are far more musical than some of the more leaden heavy dub and consequently likely to appeal to a far wider audience. The title track, dub version of Jacob Miller's "Baby I Love You So", which itself used the rhythm of Pablo's instrumental "Cassava Piece", is arguably the greatest dub track ever recorded, certainly the best known, with vocals and instruments (especially drums) zooming in and out of the mix in a marvellously inspired and lively fashion. That it stands out on this album is testament to its brilliance, as the whole album is consistently superb, with not a single track less than excellent - a rare occurrence among dub albums. It is a tribute to the mixing genius of King Tubby.

Adding bonus tracks to an album this good is a bit superfluous, but it's worth noting that the extremely fine "Silent Satta" stands up well in this company, though it sounds likely to have been mixed by Lee Perry rather than King Tubby.

This album is a great introduction both to dub in general and to the work of Augustus Pablo and King Tubby in particular.

13 of 13 people found the following review helpful By David Johnson VINE VOICE on 5 Feb. 2007
Format: Audio CD
I bought this on the advice of a good friend after really enjoying some of his Tubby vinyls at a party. My first Dub purchase, I can only echo the sentiments of those below by saying that this a beautiful record that straddles all musical genres.

This is a stunning amalgam of Augustus Pablo's ghostly melodica, echoing snatches of the haunting voice of Jacob Miller and the genius of Tubby's transcendal beats. There are many highlights such as the skipping tempo of,"stop them Jah," the beatiful re-verbs and the vocal on the recognizable,"King Tubby Meets Rockers uptown. Another highlight is the treatment that's given to the indestructible rhythm of The Abysinnian's,"Satta Dub." As with all classic records it's a little unfair to mention single tracks, all off them on here stand out, for the subtle genius of the cut and the intricate techniques that Tubby used to build a track. The bounus tracks on here fit into the original album perfectly.

Dub fans should already have this in their collection but if you are just getting into the music make this your first essential purchase. It will shatter any prejudices that you have towards this music; the louder you play it the more you learn.

Returning to this album after nearly 25 years I thought I was just satisfying some nostalgia for my mispent youth, but this recording is greater than I remembered. At first listen, it may seem too mellow and even unsophisticated, but give it time. Repeated listens seep into your unconscious, untill it will become one of your favourite pieces of music, because it is deeply musical, the layers of rhythm reveal themseves slowly, like great classical music (think Bach's Goldberg variations) and the latent spirituality of the music is both calming and stimulating at the same time. No one track stands out for me, they all meld one into the next. Great for last thing at night, great for general chilling out, great even to drive to. It should be in everyones collection.

Sespite the projected long delivery it arrived in 10 days or so over Christmas.
Was bought as a present, and has been enjoyed.
A seminal album and influential if relatively simple in its soundscape.
