Augustus Pablo – East of the River Nile

Augustus Pablo
East of the River Nile
Style: Reggae
Label: Message
Catalog Number: MESSAGE 1003
Released: 1981, 80's
Stream:

One of the all time great instrumental dub albums, East of the River Nile ticks all the boxes… It was recorded at legendary studios Channel One, King Tubby’s, and Lee Perry’s Black Ark, includes an all-star supporting cast with members of Bob Marley’s Wailers, and features pioneering melodica playing from the virtuosic Pablo, the first musician to use the instrument in reggae. It’s a deep, relaxing dub journey and a good entry port for anyone looking to get into reggae music.
