Information

The twenty ninth release on Pressure Sounds, 'El Rocker's', features one of the greatest of Jamaica's musicians/producers: Augustus Pablo; this is one of the first major re-issues since Pablo's untimely death last year.

'El Rocker's' focuses on the rhythms and tunes that were used to make up the epochal 'King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown' album. Consisting of seventeen tunes, all rare alternate cuts and hard to find gems, no Pablo aficionado's collection will be complete without this album.

Tastefully packaged with a twelve page booklet with the CD and a special insert on the vinyl featuring probably the best sleevenotes on the artist that we personally have ever seen. This album is so strong that it practically walks out of the record shop!

Reviews

Worthy companion to "Rockers Uptown"

Jesse, Nov 14, 2003
This is an essential CD as a companion to the seminal "King Tubby meets the Rockers Uptown", as the CD contains alternate takes (many from rare 7"s) of the cuts on that album. Highly recommended.

High Ranking Pablo

Gino, from Antwerp (Belgium), Jan 05, 2004
This is an absolutely stunning collection of heavy heavy killers from the great Augustus Pablo!
The booklet is excellent and the music is to die for! Whether you're a Pablo fanatic or just a reggae and dub-lover, you can't live without this one!
If you don't believe me: try the audio clips and see (hear) for yourselves!

  • Bunny 'Striker' Lee & Friends  - Next CutBunny 'Striker' Lee & Friends Next Cut

    Just when you thought the Bunny Lee catalogue was exhausted a rummage around Bunnys never ending supply of tapes has brought you this gem. Next Cut has a plethora of outtakes alternate mixes and slipped down the back of the sofa gems!!! A fine album that gives you a listen to the studio banter and a small talk that permeated Kingstons music scene.

  • Ernie Smith  - Tell Me WhyErnie Smith Tell Me Why

    Clear slick production on the A side as Ernie Smith asks 'Tell Me Why' backed by the kind of rocksteady Mr Lynn Tait. The Flipside again features Lynn Tait with Mr Dooby. Nice rocksteady from Merritone. Lovely pressing from Dub Store.
