Pablo, Augustus - Rockers Meets King Tubby In A Fire House Rockers Meets King Tubby In A Fire House
Reggae Used - LP 43001 Shanachie
1980 Original. We Sound Graded The Album And Heard Two Pops On Side 1 (Hence Price). “As Is Often The Case With Albums That Come From Deep Within The Insular World Of 1970s Kingston, The Title Of This One Bears A Little Bit Of Explanation. "Rockers" Was The Nickname Given To Melodica Player And Producer Augustus Pablo; On This Album, As On Several Other Classics Of The Genre, He Is Teamed Up With Dub Wizard Osbourne Ruddock (Better Known As King Tubby) To Deliver A Set Of Dub Mixes Derived From Singles By Hugh Mundell, Delroy Williams, And Others. (King Jammy, One Of King Tubby's Protégés, Also Contributes A Few Mixes Here, But Is Uncredited.) "Fire House" Is An Ironic Reference To The Waterhouse Section Of Kingston, Where King Tubby's Studio Was Located. On This Collection, Pablo's Sound Predominates: His Eerie Melodica Lines Snake In And Out Of The Mix, And The Gentle-But-Firm Grooves That Always Typify A Rockers Production Are In Full Force. King Tubby Contributes The Special Element Of Dubwise Alchemy That Was His Own Trademark, Administering Echo And Delay At Judicious Intervals And Keeping The General Atmosphere Mysterious And Seductive. Because Of The Nature Of The Music And Its Consistently High Quality, Highlights Are A Bit Difficult To Pick Out, But They Include The Very Dread "Zion Is A Home" And The Equally Fine "Dub In A Matthews Lane Area," Which Could Be Used As A Master Class In Dub Technique.” – Rick Anderson, AMG... more details

Pablo, Augustus - King Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown King Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown
Reggae New - LP CT 085 Clocktower
Sealed Reissue Of The Legendary Dub Album. “If You Had To Pick One Album That Best Represents The Pinnacle Of The Art Of Dub, You'd Cull The Candidates Down Pretty Quickly To Ten Or 12, And It Would Get Very Difficult After That. Few Would Fault You For Ending Up With This One, Though, Which Stands As Perhaps The Finest Collaboration Between Two Of Instrumental Reggae's Leading Lights: Producer And Melodica Player Augustus Pablo And Legendary Dub Pioneer King Tubby. Among Other Gems, This Album Offers Its Title Track -- A Dub Version Of Jacob Miller's "Baby I Love You So" -- Which Is Widely Regarded As The Finest Example Of Dub Ever Recorded. But The Rest Of The Album Is Hardly Less Impressive. "Each One Dub," Another Cut On A Jacob Miller Rhythm, Possesses The Same Dark And Mystical Ambience, If Not Quite The Same Emotional Energy, As "King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown," And The Version Of The Epochal "Satta Massaganna" That Closes The Album Is Another Solid Winner. Pablo's Trademark "Far East" Sound (Characterized By Minor Keys And Prominent Melodica Lines) Is Predominant Throughout, And Is Treated With Care And Grace By King Tubby, Who Has Rarely Sounded More Inspired In His Studio Manipulations Than He Does Here. Absolutely Essential.” – Rick Anderson, AMG... more details
 
Pablo, Augustus - Eastman Dub Eastman Dub
Reggae Used - LP RAS 3038 RAS
Beautiful 1988 Original With Tiny Saw Cut. Vinyl Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “Eastman Dub Is A Reworked Mix Of Dub Versions Of The 1977 Album Let's Get Started, Which In Its Original Form Stands As One Of Augustus Pablo's Finest Albums. Though Eastman Dub Doesn't Quite Compare To Let's Get Started, It Represents An Intriguing Approach To Dub That Is Unique To Pablo But Not Surprising Given His Penchant For Innovative Arrangements And Productions. The Dubs On This Record Only Occasionally Retain The Original Vocals. The Absence Of These Beautiful Harmonies, Sung By Tetrack, Makes The Music Significantly Thinner. Furthermore, Pablo's Melodica Is Barely A Presence. As A Result, The Bass Parts Often Bear A Weight They Were Not Meant To Carry. But In Spite Of This, Some Of The Songs Work Very Well. The Title Track, For Example, Uses The Original Vocals Intermittently To Good Effect, And The Percussion On "Only Jah Jah Dub" Is Perfect. Eastman Dub Takes Some Unconventional Risks In Its Versions, But It's Well Worth Hearing For The Times When Those Risks Pay Off.” – Ben Tausig, AMG... more details
