there have been many pablo collections, and due to the quality of material available, most have been excellent. this, however, from the people at 'metro' just about tops the lot, in terms of value and presentation, certainly. and for content, the compilers must take a heap of credit for the choice and placement of the tunes, and also (for the most part) avoiding the obvious. on disc 2 the music almost transcends humanity in it's brilliance, and exudes an aura of symphonic beauty, truly works of extreme skill and devotion, consisting of longer pieces or 12" mixes.
i'm afraid that the first disc is only brilliant, and features (in comparison) better known pieces, including the obligatory 'king tubby meets the rockers uptown' (one of the finest tunes ever pressed on 7" vinyl), as well as the jacob miller original from where it was sourced. stuffed with classics, too many to individualize, but check the most expressive bass playing ever on the doomy '555 crown street/1 rutland close'. as with the 'dub' collection, metro have really outdone themselves here, and i will be on the lookout for more produce, given the very high standards set by these. impossible not to buy.

This is a man who achieved a sound that is unmistakeable. His passionate playing adds a different voice to Reggae.

I bought this cd not expecting much,I thought the tracks would sound the same. But what a great double cd,I am shock he never made it big before his death.
Each track sounds fresh and ralaxing,and the cd is always in my car. I would recommend this cd if you love dub. 5/5

Her indoors is an Elgar fan "of a certain age" and when this was playing she actually took notice and asked if she could borrow it.
'Nuff said? Good record from an influential artist and well worth having "in the box."

Absolutely great album. Contains most of the tracks on that other comp album 'El Rockers'- same mixes- but here the sound quality is superior. It has a touch less edge (on the treble) but doesn't fall out of bed when a cymbal is hit, etc.

I had never heard of this guy before, but when I read the reviews I just had to buy it. If you like dub you will like this cd. Great music. Postage and package was very good. It was delivered well before the expected date.

Like a 'plum', I bought this same album 2 years back (hate it when that happens) - definitely the double album to purchase for those touched by Augustus Pablo's haunting melodica and heavy dub rythms - Rockers !

For years on vinyl. Then got an extended copy on cd. This double cd is more of the same,and more at a bargain price
