    If you are an Augustus Pablo fan, buy this immediately! If you are a fan of dub, buy this immediately! If you have never heard any Pablo or dub, buy this immediately: it's a great introduction! Ever since I first heard East of the River Nile back in the late '70s, I was hooked. This much-expanded edition also boasts informative liner notes. I'm riding that melodica wave!
