Rastafarian Pablo is referencing spiritual leader Haile Selassie's claim to be descended from King David, a king of ancient Israel who could sooth the soul with his flute and harp. Pablo does the same here with his melodica and occasional keyboards

In 1983 August Pablo gave us King David’s Melody, an 11 track instrumental set, now re-issued by VP Records inna extended form. The reason this LP is called King David’s Melody is that Haile Selassie I is from the line of King David, and King David was always playing his harps. Through the divine inspiration of Haile Selassie I this name is chosen (Augustus Pablo). The late great Augustus Pablo will be remembered as the somewhat frail-looking rastaman, who made an amazing contribution to roots reggae both as a melodica/keyboards player and as a producer with an immediately recognizable style. When he passed away on May 18th, 1999 the reggae community was shocked.

King David's Melody is a reggae compilation album by Augustus Pablo, originally released in 1983 on his Rockers record label. It is a collection of singles recorded between 1975 and 1982 for both the Rockers and Message record labels. It features Robbie Shakespeare on bass guitar, Earl "Chinna" Smith on guitar and Horsemouth Wallace on drums.

KING DAVID'S MELODY is an Augustus Pablo instrumeal album full of beguiling melodies played by Palblo on melodica and keyboard. Disc: 1. 1. King David's Melody. What's great about this CD is the mix of melody and rhythm, both seeped in JAH spirituality by the late-great Mr. Pablo. it's all pure clean dub. All of the bonus tracks are excellent as well.
