Augustus Pablo - Dub, Reggae & Roots From The Melodica King mp3 album

Horace Swaby (21 June 1954 – 18 May 1999), known as Augustus Pablo, was a Jamaican roots reggae and dub record producer, melodica player and keyboardist, active from the 1970s till his death. He popularised the use of the melodica (an instrument at that time primarily used in Jamaica to teach music to schoolchildren) in reggae music. His album King Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown (1976) is often regarded as one of the most important examples of dub.

This title gives a good representation of his work while also displaying his vast experience and inate talent. While, as with almost any album some tracks are stronger than others, I'll let you decide which. I can say however that this is a great overall album.

Indeed, a title like Dub, Reggae & Roots From the Melodica King may seem unlikely to shed new light on an already renowned Jamaican producer. While there is a small degree of overlap with previous releases, many of the cuts offered are decidedly more difficult to track down.
