Augustus Pablo - Three The Hard Way
This is one of the heaviest reggae rhythms of all time from one of my favourite producers - Augustus Pablo. Recorded in the mid 70s, below are audio clips of three versions of this killer and classic rhythm. First up, a vocal cut by Jacob Miller - "Baby I Love You So", followed by the awesome dub cut mixed by King Tubby - "King Tubbys Meet The Rockers Uptown" and then the instrumental cut "Cassava Piece" featuring Pablo himself on the melodica.
Augustus Pablo, Jacob Miller and King Tubby are all no longer with us. All three died somewhat prematurely. A common theme with many artists and producers in the reggae world.
Strictly rockers style. Enjoy!
