AUGUSTUS PABLO - ROCKERS MEET KING TUBBY'S IN A FIRE HOUSE
Rockers is the name of Roots Reggae during the later 1970's. And Rockers is the name of the man who invented the "far east" sound: Horace Swaby a.k.a. Augustus Pablo.

Every lover of DUB music knows this far east sound. It's the sound of a melodica swimming in echo's on top of drum and bass lines. A sound which is often re-created in contemporary DUB.

Not too many people know the other talents of Augustus Pablo, although none of them are less important that his creations with the melodica.

Ever since he recorded his first tune (Iggy, Iggy, in 1971) for Randy's in Jamaica, Augustus Pablo has been blessing us with his versatility in music creation.

This true DUB REGGAE CLASSIC proofs it. No serious and self-respecting collector of Jamaican Music can exist without having a copy of Rockers Meets King Tubby's in a Fire House.

When Rockers meets King Tubby's, you'll have the best of DUB in one. When this meeting then takes place in a Fire House, you know it will get hot. 

And this album really is hot. 

It features Augustus Pablo in his many facets. Not only the melodica. In fact, there's only a very little bit melodica on the album. 

Those who expect an album full with melodica, will therefore be dissapointed. But then, they would limit their perception of August Pablo's wide scale of talents.

Augustus Pablo knows how to play keyboard, he knows how to mix DUB as well. Together with Prince Jammy and King Tubby, he mixed this album into the top of DUB.

Because this is one of the best Augustus Pablo albums. It deserves a place in the top 20 of most important DUB albums of all times. Simply because the tracks are crucial without one exception.

Want some crucial ROCKERS? Some solid DUB, and even some bonus tracks? What are you waiting for...
