In the 70s Augustus Pablo seemed to appear, like a vision from another world. His music was ethereal, evocative, and unique. There has not really been anyone like him, before or since. He now stands recognized as Jamaican music's best-known lead instrumentalist.

By the mid 1980s Pablo had become a lot more visible, a lot less fashionable and a little of his mystique had rubbed off.

In the 1970s his own music sold in vast quantities for reggae product and he became a mainstay as an instrumentalist session player on many Jamaican recordings. In tandem with this session work he built a unique catalogue of music for a variety of his own labels such as Rockers, Rockers International, Message and Yard.

'Message Music' deals with Pablo's instrumentals and dubs from around the mid-80s to the 90s as we think it is time to present a re-examination of this slightly overlooked period of his musical output.
