Format: Audio CD
This showcase collection features all six of Jacob Miller's Augustus Pablo produced single A-sides back to back with their respective dub versions. It's a great collaboration: Miller's impassioned vocals, Pablo's uniquely strong rhythms, melodies and arrangements played by some of Jamaica's finest musicians; plus the legendary King Tubby at the mixing desk. All the tracks were recorded over an 18 month period (1974-75) at Randy's and Dynamic studios and provided much of the source material for the landmark "King Tubby meets rockers uptown" album, after being mixed at King Tubby's studio by the master himself.
Miller was still a teenager when he started working with Pablo, but handles each vocal performance with an assurance that belies his youthful inexperience, whether it's the dread lyrics of tracks like "False rasta" or love songs like "Baby I love you so", and Tubby's dub mixes beautifully complement the A-sides. Dub was still a relatively new phenomenon when these recordings were made and hardly known outside of Jamaica. The idea of stripping a track down to its bare bones, adding effects such as echo and reverb, and dropping its constituent musical elements in and out of the mix was pioneered by Tubby, opening the door to a whole new world of sonic exploration.
It's difficult to pick favourite tracks on a compilation as good as this one. The most famous of these singles is undoubtedly "Baby I love you so" or rather its dub version "King Tubby meets rockers uptown", which was one of the first examples of dub to make any sort of impact internationally. But from the opening "Keep on knocking", which begins with a statement of intent by Miller ("This is rockers! Original rockers!") it's non-stop quintessential mid-70's reggae from start to finish.

This CD brings together the six singles that Jacob Miller recorded for Augustus Pablos Rockers Organisation over 18 months between 1974 and 1975 interspersed with their six dub versions mixed by King Tubby. Millers effortless vocal style combined with Pablos delicate melodica and xylophone lines, along with Tubbys ground breaking dub mixes make this collection a reggae classic, one of those rare moments in music when a few individuals are brought together at the height of their powers to produce something awesome. Baby I Love You So must be one of the great reggae love songs of all time but its classic dub flip side King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown proved even more popular when originally released, spawning the classic dub album of the same name. Who Say Jah No Dread deals with the commercialisation of Rastafarianism while False Rasta is about the struggle for rasta acceptance. Miller went on to form Inner Circle and was killed in a road crash in 1980 aged only 28, King Tubby was shot dead in 1989 and Augustus Pablo died of a nerve disorder in 1999. These immense talents may no longer be here but their musical legacy always shall.
