Augustus Pablo - King David's Melody (Greensleeves / VP) CD
Bookmark and Share
Track Listing / Description Greensleeves / VP reissue this 1983 compilation of mainly late seventies / early eighties self produced melodica instrumentals that originated on his revered  Message and Rockers International labels.  Many of the instrumentals here were used as rhythms for Pablo's singers including Junior Delgado - the title track is on the same rhythm as Jux's Away With Your Fussing & Fighting and is an update on the Sound Dimension's Bitter Blood, itself an instrumental version to Ken Boothe's Just Another Girl... we could go on.  Zion High is a cut to the Paragons' Riding On A High & Windy Day, West Abyssinia is Pablo's take on the melody to Jackie Mittoo's Free Soul, Israel In Harmony is the instrumental cut to Earl Sixteen's Changing World, while Mr Bassie and Rockers Mood are cuts to Horace Andy vocals.  The C D release gathers the dub sides only previously available on the original singles.  Essential, deep roots.
