Dont really hear much about him on here, unless ive missed it

digged out a few pablo tunes today havent listened for quite some time, tbh havent got a masses amount of his material but listening today what a cool and laid back style and a wkd voice, a song, protect i , music is my desire, dubbing is a must

any big tunes too watch out for?

You have his debut LP don't you? If not, it's a must. Sometimes known as Revolutionary Dream and other times as I Love I Bring. Either way it's a carefully planned out masterpiece. I also like In The Future and it's dub. [b]A Song[/b] not so much.

Right, his early stuff is so smooth and irie, first two albums are top tier roots albums. Less enthusiastic about the newer stuff I've heard, but that's the way it usually goes for an oldies guy like me.

He's touring in N. California this summer- will be attending!

Pablo Moses ranks among the top unsung heroes of Reggae music.

A Song
Pave the way
+ dub
In the Future
+dub
Confession of a Rastaman
Mission
and his last one, Rebirth
+ dub

are my favorite

For some reason, I've never been able to truly appreciate Revolutionary Dream to its masterpiece status. But dont get me wrong, it's a good album. I was privileged to be authorized to release Pave the Way Dub and In the future + Dub on my label 15-odd years ago and I have fond memories of these releases.

Was guesting on Desta Nation's radio show the other week and they are big Pablo Moses fans. This is one they played, but as a dub piece...

Definitely an underrated artist, although he was very influential in his day. This track is from his last album, The Rebirth:

Man I wish I could get the dub of the In the future LP. I love that one. The A Song LP is also great and completely agree with the praise for revolutionary dream. I'm ok with the song writting and the singing in pave the way and it's dub counterpart... But the synth parts make me cringe and render it almost unlistenable to me. One day I want to check out his more modern release I think it's called rebirth from memory. Overall though I think he is an unsung reggae hero

I checked for you and much to my surprise the CD with In the future + dub is available nowhere! What's even more surprising is that there is no online version. I dont have the license anymore, it expired years ago so I can't do anything for you unfortunately.

Do, by all means, check out "Rebirth". I find it very nice, with acoustic drums, full orchestration (not just a keyboard, but lots of different layers of sounds and instruments that create a very interesting and quite tantalizing rootsy atmosphere. He is clever enough to avoid trying to imitate himself from 30-35 years ago. The sound is 2010 acoustic Sly & Robbie, but he and the musicians remain true to his roots sound of the past without being a parody. That's a very tough balancing act and he aces it. His singing is still very nice and carries a lot of emotion, anger, hope and love, the lyrics are still very clever and poetic and militant.

Honestly, I cant think of many albums released that year that equal or best it.

If you havent listened to "Confession of a Rastaman", by all means do it.

I personally love "Mission" but some people might be put off at first by a slightly more synthetic sound. To me it is the perfect balance between computer drums and roots rock reggae in 1993. And the songs are exquisite.

wow you've totally talked me into getting into rebirth and its dub!

I've only ever seen the dub to in the future for sale once and it was for 20 pounds and at the time I thought that was too much. Other than that your right its not available digitally anywhere. The mp3 of the in the future that I bought said it included the dub in the cover but it didn't

the CD I released in 98 had the original album AND the dub versions
then I released on vinyl the dub album through Walboomers. The dub is worth is. Dark, haunting and sparse. A perfect companion to the album, which is a truly fantastic album.

I remember well the Tabou1 label in the end 90's. I still have my copy of 'In The Future + Dub'. It was the first Pablo Moses album i bought. The sound is really dark and powerfull, the artwork of the release is excellent. I was working in a camping near the beach and the album was played during all the summer 2000. I'm not a big fan of 'Revolutionary Dreams' and i prefer 'In The Future' by far. Thanks to Guillaume Bougard for the job.
A pity that the 'Revolutionary Dreams' dub album was cancelled however when it was scedulled in 1976...

I never heard about a dub companion to "Revolutionary Dreams". Anyone knows about it?

I just got confirmation from Pablo himself that the only dubs there are might be B sides of singles taken from, but no dub album for, "Revolutionary dream"

It's strange to see a famous LP like 'Revolutionary Dreams' without no dub album. Perhaps because of the subsequent fall of Soundtracs Limited Company in Early 1976,6 months after Pablo Moses release. I did investigations for the writing of the Jacob Miller & Inner Circle book 'Forward Jah Jah Children'.I have a complete chapter about Soundtracs and Jam Sounds history. So i found informations about a 'Revolutionary Dub' album schedulled to be released BY Geoffrey Chung. I asked to Pablo Moses via his Facebook page but no reply...
