Included here is an excerpt from David Rodigan’s interview with the legendary dub master. There is no bigger fan of Pablo than Rodigan, himself. He talks about it in almost every interview he gives.
The tune played after the interview is Pablo’s first record, a gem called “Iggy, Iggy.” Pablo recorded this track at Aquarius crca 1971 with producer Herman Chin Loy. It is Chin Loy who in fact gives the young Horace Swaby his new recording name – Augustus Pablo.
Here is a 1981 profile of Pablo that appeared in Newsweek. Big up to my friend and MIDNIGHT RAVER BLOG contributor MIDNIGHT DREAD.
