Augustus Pablo “Cassava Piece” (Alternate version) 7″ (Hot Stuff)

“Cassava Piece” is one of those ethereal instrumentals that has become almost as elemental to my world as the wind.  I hear it everywhere and in everything.  Clearly one of Pablo’s masterpieces and one of his most influential compositions.  This 7″ is so great because it contains an earlier version of the tune that differs significantly from the album version which appears on ‘Original Rockers.’  The chord structure and arrangement remains the same, however, Pablo plays different notes on the melodica throughout the tune making it a very notable version to own on wax.
