One of the best records I've ever owned. Hands down Augustus' best. Different than King Tubby meets the Rockers, this is not a dub album. These are beautiful instrumentals. The rythms are solid, some of the best reggae rythms I've ever heard. The bass is thick and heavy, pulsing through the tracks like a gorilla through the jungle. The drumming is tight, with the snare hitting the offbeats of the offbeats of the offbeats. The guitars chicka with that sound only found in jamaica 1972. But thats not even the beginning of the album. Augustus Pablo's playing is incredible. These simple lines just float over the rhythms, sometimes copied or played off of on the piano or organ. The arranging is great too, these are perfectly crafted songs, simple, yet never boring. This music is cheerful, moody, spiritual, and down to earth, all at once. How does he do it? I have no idea.

Dub organizer is one of the attention getter's on the Rebel rock disc. For the beginning intro to instumental reggae music, this is one the most important cd's for the beginner to have. The rebel rock Cd will bring plenty of enjoyable listening hours, to the collector,and also those that are looking for an alternative to the ninety mile an hour music of today. To find where todays music got it's start we must find it's roots. Augustus Pablo will be missed dearly, unlike the more commercialized artist that we hear about in the headlines, his music will live on . Live the life you love, and love the life you live.

This is a fantastic CD for the student of reggae. Augustus Pablo creates low-key but intense reggae instrumentals. He combines the tough street sound of early reggae with his own mystically-oriented jams and the weird sonorities of the melodica to create something that is distinctly his. Not many people in any field of music can say that.
The recording does suffer from the circumstances in which it was recorded. They didn't have the best recording equipment, and occasionally Pablo's melodica is a hair out of tune. There is also something of a sameness to this CD, with too many songs in the same key following one after another. It could have benefited from more careful remastering and perhaps a resequencing of the songs.
But this shouldn't stop you from buying the CD. Pablo's music still has the power to lure you into listening to it over and over again, because as sparse as the music seems sometimes, there are actually many subtle things going on here that deserve a careful listening. And the arrangements and performances are top-notch in spite of the slightly dodgy recordings, with the best reggae musicians of the era featured to great effect.
Overall, I would recommend this for both serious students of reggae and for those who want to mellow out with something that's musically respectable yet easy on the ear.

The late Augustus Pablo's innovativeness can not be stated too strongly. Whether by his use of melodica as a lead and respectable instrument, or by his adaptations of Dub music into his own unique and instantly recognizable sound, Pablo was always cutting edge.
This lp, with "King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown," are excellent primers into the world of dub music, and are essential listening for any newcomer right up to the most ardent of reggae fans.
Nearly 10 years have passed since I first acquired this lp, and many hundreds of listens later it is still fresh and innovative. THAT is the sign of great music, regardless of genre. How many cds can you say that about?
