‘In Fine Style’ is the second album of Augustus Pablo’s material to be released on Pressure Sounds.
“We play music by feeling it. We call it the Far East Sound. 'Cause we play in minor chords. When you play those chords it's like a story without words” Augustus Pablo.
Unlike many of his contemporaries Pablo understood and was able to fully explore the possibilities of the twelve inch mix which perfectly suited his instrumentals and their jazz-like approach to reggae music. The full melodic range of his work was brought to the fore on this format and gathered together on this compilation are some of the best examples of his twelve inch explorations. Tracks such as 'Phillip's Showcase’ and ‘Pablo In Fine Style’ are not limited by the constrictions of the seven inch format. The records on this set are not only beautiful but are the product of love, humanity and an exceptional devotion to a higher force. It is powerful music in the truest sense of the word.
The album is stunningly packaged in one of the classiest Pressure Sounds sleeves in a while. With sleeve notes of the usual high standard and many pictures that have never been used before!
