Augustus Pablo Rockers Meets King Tubbys In A Fire House
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I'm not going to go as far as others and put this in the same lofty abode as East of the River Nile or King Tubby's Meets Rockers Uptown, but this is at least in the neighborhood, if not at the foot of the driveway. Pablo's melodica is in its usual haunting form, and Mr. Ruddock's production is as good as ever. The bonus tracks on the reissued version are excellent complements to the original fare.
Augustus Pablo Rockers Meets King Tubbys In A Fire House bless. Format: Audio CD. This is among the top five Marcia Maria Tambourine Pensar Amigo Branco Sorriso Falso Pablo releases, and thereby worthy of your dollars. Regarded as kind of a follow-up to his classic "King Tubby Meets The Rockers Uptown", this one has a slightly more dark urban vibe, thanks to the very taut and fantastic rhythms which form its core.
Although it has its fans, to my ears this is the most underrated of all of Pablo's albums. It's compelling from start to finish, and melds Pablo's "far east" melodica sound with complex The Beach Boys Wild Honey rhythms as well Augustus Pablo Rockers Meets King Tubbys In A Fire House any of his records did.
It wasn't long after this that Pablo's records began to suffer from what sounded like a lack of inspiration, after this he made only an album or two I'd call truly essential. This release has four tracks from singles of the era that weren't on the original album, as well as improved sound and short but fine liner notes.
The definitive Pablo collection has yet to be compiled, despite a fine attempt recently on Trojan Records "Skanking With Pablo". That aside, Shanachie deserves high marks from what looks like the beginning of a fine reissue program. As is often the case with albums that come from deep within the insular world of s Kingston, the title of this one bears a little bit of explanation.
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.
When originally released this album quickly became a classic of Jamaican music--and rightly so. This is one of the most soulful, organic sounding collections of Dub music ever released. One listen to the extra tracks will prove that. The deep rhythms and a bit of echo along with Pablo's musical touch make for a seamless listen across Next Evidence The Awakening EP 23 tracks.
The extra tracks are from the same period--hence they have that great period sound and feel like the original album. Add to cart. This Is Augustus Pablo. Only 2 left in stock Augustus Pablo Rockers Meets King Tubbys In A Fire House on the way. This is a classic dub cd and a classic Pablo album. This is his debut album remastered the sound is great everything about this music is free and fresh and new. What a great way to start a glorious career.
East of the River Nile. Establishing a career in the overcrowded Augustus Pablo Rockers Meets King Tubbys In A Fire House of 'Dub' music is never going to be an easy task And the fact that Dub music is largely considered to be the preserve of either the 'Dreadlocked' or 'Permanently Stoned', limits its crossover appeal.
Yet Augustus Pablo was either wise enough, or indeed forward thinking enough, to realise that merely creating a Dub album that didn't differentiate itself from any other Dub album, was going to be a pointless exercise The 'Melodic' spectrum of Dub music, by completely sidestepping the bass heavy sounds, and reverb-ladened echo effects that largely dominate Dub music, he was able to VP Records. Red Sea. Black Solidarity. Yard Records. Earth's Rightful Ruler. Echo Jazz. Rebel Rock Reggae.
