After Augustus Pablo established himself by playing melodica and keyboards on other producers' tracks, he and his brother established the Rockers label, named after the sound system they ran together. Pablo began crafting his own tracks and recording a variety of vocalists alongside his dub and melodica versions on these tunes.
This show gets in to some of this core of the classic work that Pablo created. We start off with his first big splash, Java, which he created with Clive Chin at Randy's studio. We move on to "East of the River Nile" a track originally done with Herman Chin Loy and later recreated for an album of the same name. After this we drop into two massive cuts with Jacob Miller on the vocals, "Baby I Love You So" and "False Rasta." Each riddim gets its time to run so we can hear the various versions including alternative vocal takes from Johnny Clarke on both riddims. The remainder of the show continues this thread of Pablo's mid-seventies productions that have the heavy effect of King Tubby throughout the versions. Wrapping it up we have another example of one of Pablo's re-versioning of Studio One originals with "A House Is Not A Home."
