Information

‘In Fine Style’ is the second album of Augustus Pablo’s material to be released on Pressure Sounds.

“We play music by feeling it. We call it the Far East Sound. 'Cause we play in minor chords. When you play those chords it's like a story without words” Augustus Pablo.

Unlike many of his contemporaries Pablo understood and was able to fully explore the possibilities of the twelve inch mix which perfectly suited his instrumentals and their jazz-like approach to reggae music. The full melodic range of his work was brought to the fore on this format and gathered together on this compilation are some of the best examples of his twelve inch explorations. Tracks such as 'Phillip's Showcase’ and ‘Pablo In Fine Style’ are not limited by the constrictions of the seven inch format. The records on this set are not only beautiful but are the product of love, humanity and an exceptional devotion to a higher force. It is powerful music in the truest sense of the word.

The album is stunningly packaged in one of the classiest Pressure Sounds sleeves in a while. With sleeve notes of the usual high standard and many pictures that have never been used before we are really proud of this release and hope you enjoy it as much as us!

Reviews

The best ever Augustus Pablo compilation.....

Filthy Rich, Mar 28, 2003
Actually, even reading the publicity doesn't do this CD justice. Everything about it is absolutely top notch. It's fantastic to see that reggae music is finally getting the packaging and treatment it has always deserved. In the last few years, Pressure Sounds, Motion, Heartbeat, Blood & Fire and Trojan have really brought out some fabulous releases and this is one of the best.

'El Rockers' was excellent but this one is simply sublime. Even if you've got only one Pablo track in your collection you'll want to have this CD. If you've never heard the man before, buy it and change your musical life forever....

The great Pablo

Hi,
i would like to thank the great Augustus Pablo for this wonderfull music that everybody should hear once at least in their life. I loved his music (i have a big collection of his records)cause it is a true music and we know that he was a true artist devoted entirely to his music. So thank you Pressure Sounds for making A.Pablo still alive and giving him the real place he deserved.
I will always say respect to great man like him.

  • Bunny Lee & Friends  - Tape RollingBunny Lee & Friends Tape Rolling

    In 1971, despite his run of hits, Bunny Lee was still having to support himself with freelance producing at Dynamic Sounds, but by 1974 he was fully independent and poised to dominate Jamaican music in the mid 70’s. The tracks on this compilation capture that moment of transition, when the smaller ghetto producers were taking over from the older musical establishment.
    Listening to Bunny’s unreleased master tapes, what bursts out of the speakers is the energy and excitement of the whole production process, from the studio chatter of the musicians to the sonic experiments at the mixing desk. These pioneering steps in deejaying and dub were the launch pad for remix culture and the core production techniques of today, a creative explosion that altered the shape of our popular culture.

    In the words of I Roy, “Striker Lee, him have the key!
