Agreed..........This is absolutely essential melodic dub 3 de mayo de 2005
Por fetish_2000 - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: CD de audio
Establishing a career in the overcrowded market of 'Dub' music is never going to be an easy task....unless your name is "King Tubby", "Lee 'Scratch' Perry" or "Mad Professor", standing out from the multitude of artists that have produced various Dub tracks or Remixes, or reinterpretations, is harder than we probably imagine. And the fact that Dub music is largely considered to be the preserve of either the 'Dreadlocked' or 'Permanently Stoned', limits its crossover appeal. Yet Augustus Pablo was either wise enough, or indeed forward thinking enough, to realise that merely creating a Dub album that didn't differentiate itself from any other Dub album, was going to be a pointless exercise....so Augustus tapped into a market that was largely untouched. The 'Melodic' spectrum of Dub music, by completely sidestepping the bass heavy sounds, and reverb-ladened echo effects that largely dominate Dub music, he was able to bring something uniquely his to the table. And with even more of an angle, he used the 'Yazoo' (considered to be a Children's harmonic instrument) and more importantly & significantly....the 'Melodica' (a harmonica with a keyboard), which would make up his organ-orientated form of Dub music, with superb use of Piano, Synthesizer, producing a sound far more relaxed and Delicate edge, than Dub music is usually given credit for.

Those hoping for the deep thumping bass, that makes up a lot of Dub music, will be either shocked or surprised to hear that, this is a million miles away from those sorts of Dub tracks, instead what Augustus does is make simple, melody-driven tracks that focus on the earthy, reflective and organic use of his Yazoo & melodica. Whether Its haunting Oriental-esque melody, or simple vocal lines that for all intents and purposes sound like a medative lullaby's, or indeed minor keys and prominent melodica lines , coupled with Pablo alternating rudimentary but spooky solos on melodica and organ over a jagged riddim, it's arguably all so beautifully implemented and produced, that its feels less like Dub and more mellow instrumental roots reggae. Its interesting to hear how Augustus takes that simplest of rhythms and builds tunes, arrangements around this central rhythm / idea, and the vibes are of the most relaxed kind, as the music never really gets past a slow-paced grooves, that languish over harmonious stoned groovescapes.

Augustus has made several absolutely essential albums in this career, and his simplified, stripped down, plaintive form of melodic-Dub truly deserved a wider-audience, as his music has the unique ability to express moods. But it, something contemplative or organic, it was a sound that was able to express moods in the way that various forms of 'Jazz' music is able to. His melodica is largely the key to his sound, and the simple instrument's unusual sound is hard to mistake for anything else, colouring and texturing the simple rhythms, in a oddly delicate way, yet the vaguely Middle Eastern sound of his melodica is immediately recognisable, and therefore makes his warm and compelling music that much more accessible. This is considered to be amongst his best albums (along with " King Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown"), as the most impressive body of his work, and having thoroughly enjoyed this album, I whole-heartily recommend it to anyone thinking of picking up Augustus' work, as it is in turns: Mellow, downtempo, laid-back and beautifully rendered, yet also spiritual & possessing a dark and mystical ambience. Critics will point to the fact that the various tracks on his albums, aren't radically different from each other, and have a tendency to blend into each other. That is partially true, as it's very easy for his sound to wash over the listener, and before you realise it...your halfway through the album. But such criticisms should not dissuade potential buyers, as this is some of the most organically expressive instrumental Dub music, I've had the pleasure of listening to, and it's one of those rare breed of albums, in which you don't necessarily have to be in a certain mood to listen to, and you feel in a better mood for having listened to it.......Essential

All Time Roots Classic 25 de noviembre de 2002
Por Thor Furbeck - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: CD de audio
East of the River Nile, arguably Augustus Pablo's greatest masterpiece, is without a doubt one of the great roots dub albums ever made. Nowhere else is Pablo's "far east style" exemplified better than on this disc. The vibe is one of ancient africa, and the music gets better on each listening; revealing layers of subtleties that are uncovered only after spending many hours with this disc. This album is a blessing and must be weighed in as an all time great. Highly recommended.

The Real Roots Vibe 1 de agosto de 2003
Por James L. - Publicado en Amazon.com

This is simply a terrific record. Shanachie wins my admiration for reissuing it with such fine sound and excellent extra tracks.
There are too many outstanding tracks on this disc to go into detail on them. Some are straightforward melodica or keyboard versions, some are closer to dub but they all reveal more layers of depth with each listen. Plus all the music has that true inspiration that can't be faked. My personal favorite is "Unfinished Melody" which in unlike anything else I've ever heard. Close to Lee Perry in vibe without sounding like him.
One note: Tracks 13 and 14 are mis-titled. 13 should be called the original 1971 version of "East of the River Nile". Track 14 is a dub of the later version of the same song (which appears earlier in the CD). I guess its title is "East Africa", which is what the disc calls Track 13.
Along with "King Tubby's meets Rockers Uptown" this is essential Pablo and essential roots music.

Augustus Pablo's best album for sure 9 de junio de 2006
Por Tell It Like It Is - Publicado en Amazon.com

I first got this album on vinyl back in high school during the early 80s. I was so entraced by it, I got my parents to buy me a melodica! I still have my melodica and I still have the vinyl record and both are in great shape, but I got the CD for the convenience and clearity. I was thrilled with the bonus tracks and the sound quality.

I had the privelage of seeing Augustus Pablo perform at NYC's Beacon Theater on Broadway. A tiny, thin man with amazing power to captivate! He wasn't showy or flashy and all he wore was a simple shirt and jeans, but man, it was a powerful show!

For those with varied eclectic taste, I think this album is to Augustus Pablo what I feel Canyon Trilogy is to Carlos Nakkai (Native American flute music). Its a defining album. In each case, the music is hypnotic and hauntingly beautiful. Even people who aren't real reggae fans can appreciate this album. Its not "too mellow" at all. Its just right!

If you love roots reggae, this album is a MUST have in your collection. This is the sound that made me fall in love with roots reggae when I was a kid and why I still love it now. Its not the sound of rap style reggae you hear today. Its totally classic reggae.

I only wish Augustus Pablo were still with us to make more beautiful music.

SIMPLY AMAZING! 12 de junio de 2002

I've been waiting for someone to reissue this classic album, and now it's here. Plus the label has included 6 tracks that weren't ever possible to get on CD before now...it's an incredible record that takes me back and reminds me how Pablo truly was and still is the king of original dub reggae. This record has influenced so many of todays artists and its about time Pablo got his due. I'm buying a 2nd copy right now so i have one in the car and one at home. I'm disapointed in so much music that i buy, but this CD doesn't have one track that needs to be skipped.
