Augustus Pablo & The Rockers All-Stars - Hungry Town Uprising

 Augustus Pablo & The Rockers All-Stars - Hungry Town Uprising. Essential Rockers International mixtape comprising Augustus Pablo productions and collaborations (some rare) between 1974 and 1988. Fully extended cuts with dubs, versions and deejay cuts. Like Sugar Minott at Black Roots, Pablo nurtured young talent, notably Junior Reid, Hugh Mundell, Ricky Grant, Icho Candy, Earl 16, Yami Bolo & White Mice. His 'far east' sound also drew in many bigger name artists, particularly in the 1970's.More killer rhythms: Love Won't Come Easy, Girl Name Pat, Cassava Piece, Mr Bassie, Artibella, Who Say Jah No Dread, Rockabye Woman, Satta. and the glorious Arise & Shine by Hugh Mundell. More cuts on the False Rasta-Hungry Town Skank. Jacob Miller revisits his Keep On Knocking hit, this time on the Hypocrites alongside U-Brown. Killer Miller's supremely positive Each One Teach One features the deejay cut from Jah Levi (Hugh Mundell).
Continuous mix. 77 minutes.
