About the Author.
Stop Them Jah. Young Generation Dub. Each One Dub. Braces Tower Dub. King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown. Corner Crew Dub. Say So. Skanking Dub. Without question the most important lp of dub stylings ever made. Mixing the amazing King Tubby's groundbreaking engineering style with the incredible simplicity of Pablo's melodica and the tight grooves of the Rockers was a match that Jah made on the 6th day prior to resting, rolling up some herb and smoking it on the 7th.
If He wishes to hear dub on the 7th day, then Tubby et al would likely be His choice. Dub was a very important movement that is still in full force in dance clubs from Kingston Augustus Pablo King Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown all points across the globe.
A most important lp. I and I love it. Praise be to Jah. Think King Tubby should be credited more on this CD; credits were not clear to me; but that is no big drawback, this is 5 star; "This is Augustus Pablo" though, is probably a safer bet, better release however. Augustus Pablos instrument, the melodica; is sort of like a piano and flute combined, bring up, what some might call a middle eastern sound: One won't be dissapointed; on the straight and narrow path, songs with lyrics, known names, Bob Marley, etc.
It might make one think, of the pyramids and palm trees, Robbie Shakespeare and others appear on this disc. If you are in the mood for lyricless reggae, a legend, dub evolution, try this. A lot more reviews here, I moved my review from the deluxe edition over here as well. I'm a relatively new fan of the genre called dub reggae or simply dubbut after intensive listening to this album, I'm sold. Each track sports an exotic melodica piece supported by heavy bass and drum rhythms, plus some fine "skank" guitar by Earl "Chinna" Smith, all draped in the fabled King Tubby atmospherics.
While I myself now consider this an essential album, I reserve my five-star ratings for works I feel comfortable recommending to anyone. This is not the case with this album. Even with the individual tracks being succinct no longer thanif one isn't a fan of this music already, it will likely start to sound Rick Wade Late Night Basix towards the end.
I took a chance on getting the deluxe edition, consisting of four extra tracks: "Black Gunn", "1 Ruthland Close", " Version", and "Silent Satta", and find each a worthy edition to the soundscape created.
A few stand-out Kate Bush Never For Ever to consider include "Keep On Dubbing" with it's neighbor-bothering bassline, the title track which is considered one of the finest dub singles in Niagara Niagara, and "Frozen Dub".
Furthermore, I recommend listening to album while relaxing, as the music is very conducive for exactly that. Hope this helps, and thanks for reading. I first heard the title track "King Tubby meets the rockers uptown" on a pal's compilation. I was searching for the album for 2 years all over Germany 'til I found it amazon.
Anyway, now that I own it I know what Kiss Love Gun have missed through these years. The most influential music up-to-date. Never has a music style had a greater Grateful Dead From The Mars Hotel on todays club and dance music.
For me, Dub is perfectly it. See all 15 customer reviews. Pablo scored another smash hit with "My Desire" John Holt.
