21/12/2020: “Peace And Love Dub” by Augustus Pablo

Augustus Pablo is usually associated with the melodica, but he was also a gifted dub producer.

I’m not too sure what the bell sound on this track it – it’s almost like the noise made by rubbing a glass. Whatever it is, it works!

There’s a wonderfully dreamlike quality to the song, enhanced by the dub effects.

The rhythm is known more widely from “Problems” by Horace Andy.

This classic cut was released in 1974 on the Iron Fist label, as the B-Side to Lovers Rock by Jah Mike.
