A dub reggae legend and one of my favorite artists Horace Swaby better known as Augustus Pablo. Pablo is known for his influence in roots reggae and as a dub record producer and keyboardist doing is best stuff in the 1970s. Many credit him as being the first popular artist to rock the melodica on a regular basis. East of the River Nile released in 1978 is probably my favorite dub record. Pablo died from a collapsed lung in 1999. He had been suffering for some time from the nerve disorder Myasthenia gravis. Check out one of his most recognizable tunes.
