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!

    Killer double A side from the masters at Studio One. Latin inspired Tommy McCook on the one side with Sauvitt and the Skatalites on the flipside with 'Well Charge' Both well worth having. Check the sound clips before you buy as they are Jamaican pressings.

  • Scientist/Roy Cousins - Four Track 10' E.P.Scientist/Roy CousinsFour Track 10' E.P.

    Roy Cousins is primarily known for his vocal group the Royals. But working with Scientist in his prime in the early 1980s he was able to spin out some formidable versions to his excellent vocal productions. These four cuts are awesome. Seismic and heavy - check em out.
