An old list of mine with LP purchases shows I had just started buying P1981 records when this reissue arrives in an import store in Europe. Therefore late 1980 is a reasonable guess. It has the oval silver label saying "VP Records, Queens NY, Made in Jamaica" on the back and I believe the Chins started their US operation in 1979. It is a mono mix.

This Get on Down reissue of Augustus Pablo's classic first album is excellent! The music is as infectious as ever, and the sound quality is very good, clear and crisp to my ears. I've had issues with a couple of their other releases sounding a bit dull, so it's nice to see this one done so well in that aspect. The presentation is great as well, with a "deluxe" gatefold cover and some information on the inside. All in all a quality pressing of an essential reggae classic!

More likely this one is a 1979 repress, compare with other 9400... Dynamic Sound Recordings matrix numbers series.

My copy has the same label design, but a different matrix.

Matrix (Side 1): ST 11214-A 
THIS IS A PABLO 
Cl Chin

Matrix (Side 2): ST 11214-B 
Cl Chin (VP)

All handwritten. Cl Chin looks like a signature and is underlined. The number in the matrix 11214 is not corresponding with the cat nr. on my label 11213, but is the same as on the back of the sleeve 11214. (?)

Certainly a Jamaican pressing with thin cover, not heavy US cardboard style, but typical Jamaican 70s sleeve.

I guess I need to create a new entry for this release.

According to the label - which shows the monochrome green lettering - this is a 1980s re-issue. The original press looks like this: Augustus Pablo - This Is Augustus Pablo (compare labels, black + green lettering on white indicates original press!)
