5.0 out of 5 stars Row Mr.Pablo Row!, 27 Sep 2010
This review is from: East of the River Nile (Audio CD)
I can't understand why one of the greatest reggae albums of all time has got no reviews!
This album was, and still is, M-A-S-S-I-V-E for a number of reasons. It was a defining moment in dub production where musical content and melody surfaced beyond the echo and loop effects.Still cited in many a 'greatest albums of all times' chart mainly becuase it is lauded by so many musicians from so many styles of music beyond reggae and dub. Spiritual rastafari in its atmosphere yet hauntingly beautiful at the same time. I paid quite a lot for this on import in 1978 and I felt pretty special owning it then. I converted a number of rock fans to things dubwise such is the universal appeal of this album.This latest version has a number of bonus tracks beyond the original 13 but they are not really needed.Highlights for me are the title track and its dub version along with the Africa Must Be Free workings made famous by the late Hugh Mundell's vocal cut. The first 3 tracks are clever workings of the same riddim which get rootsier as each one unfolds.Not really a bad track to be found if you like things strictly dubwise.If you do then why are you reading this surely you already own this album?

5.0 out of 5 stars Mesmerizing, 20 Feb 2012
This review is from: East Of The River Nile (Audio CD)
One of the greatest records ever made; heard this twenty years ago and it made an indelible impression back then; just bought it and listened to it for the first time in a long time since and nothing's changed - those melodies, that haunting production.

5.0 out of 5 stars Head North, End Up East..., 30 April 2012
This review is from: East Of The River Nile (Audio CD)
My favourite dub album for a long time was "North of the River Thames" by Doc Pablo & The Dub Syndicate. It wasn't until quite recently that I discovered "East of the River Nile", and realised that my favourite album was a homage to another classic!
Get them both! Melodica-tastic.
