The Original Rocker

Augustus Pablo
Original Rockers
Review by John Bush
Original Rockers is a solid introduction to Augustus Pablo's haunting melodica playing, and includes brief flashes of his dub inspiration as well on "Tubby's Dub Song" and "Rockers Dub." As usual, the lineup is superb with Robbie Shakespeare, Aston and Carlton "Carlie" Barrett, Earl "Chinna" Smith and Bobby Ellis, among others. Though much of the album is instrumental, Dillinger guests on "Brace a Boy."
