Augustus Pablo has his place set in reggae's story. His unique sound stemmed from the use of a simple musical instrument, the melodica, which somehow in his hands, became majestic and mystical at the same time. Augustus Pablo cut his musical teeth with producer Herman Chin Loy in 1969, with his first record Iggy Iggy. His second cut for the producer was to be the timeless "East of the River Nile," which carried that haunting Far East feel that in many ways became his signature sound. Pablo has worked with many of Jamaica's top producers, adding his flavor not only with his melodica, but also with his keyboard and piano skills. He has added his magic touch to many of the classic Studio One rhythms, "Skanking Easy" ("Swing Easy" rhythm), "Frozen Dub" ("Frozen Soul" rhythm) to name but two, and his classic set of dubs that he reworked from his own tunes and productions for artists such as Jacob Miller became his renowned dub set King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown, working with the master himself Mr. King Tubby at his studio in Drummlie Avenue, Kingston. Jamaican Recordings have sourced a collection of original rhythms that were cut at Duke Reid's Treasure Isle studio that Mr. Pablo worked over in his now-familiar style, again adding his magical sound over these cuts to produce what Jamaican Recordings believe to be another classic set.
