Today we're listening to Augustus Pablo and King Tubby, two Jamaican dub artists. They were also sound engineers and producers, and recorded reggae legends like Lee “Scratch” Perry and Bob Marley. Pablo popularized the melodica in dub music. Tubby and Pablo’s 1976 LP, King Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown, is a canonical dub album that has influenced artists across genres from its release to the present day. We’re also playing Pablo’s 1973 debut LP, on which he shreds the melodica. Honorable mention is King Tubby’s cover of “Take Five.”
Have a great Thursday.
