N/A (new release)
Horace Swaby (21 June 1954 – 18 May 1999), known as Augustus Pablo, was a Jamaican roots reggae and dub record producer, melodic player and keyboardist, active from the 1970s until 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 Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown (1976) is often regarded as one of the most important examples of dub.
With the release of Rockers Come East in 1987 Augustus Pablo continued to 'mix up the vibes a little more'. Featuring digi-dubs to Junior Delagado’s hits Raggamuffin Year and Call Me, steppers like Sun Ray Dub and the deep and heavy Zion Seals Dub the album continued Pablo's journey into a revolutionary new age. Recorded at HC&F, Creative Sound and Tuff Gong studios, engineered by Philip Smart and Michael Carroll, here's another great longplayer re-issued with the Greensleeves seal of quality.
