1 - LEE, BUNNY "STRIKER"
- STRIKES BACK - THE SOUND OF STUDIO ONE - (CD)
The Sound of Studio One can be identified by the great singers that it cultivated along the many great songs that these singers released. But as studio 1s dominance was slowly pulled away by the up and coming new breed of producers many of the artists would inevitably end up working for these new camps and so the songs and singers found a new audience. The reggae sound of the Studio 1 would make a great combination and the man to pull this was together Bunny Lee.The 1960s in Jamaica was run by two main factions, Coxsonnes Studio 1 and Duke Reids Treasure Isle. These two leading protagonists saw what some of the other great Sound System men like Tom The Great Sebastian had not taken onboard, that when the tunes they imported began to dry up from the USA, their future lied in producing music. Tunes that suited the musical styles that the people of Jamaica still enjoyed. By the late 1960s thse supremacy was being challenged by the up and coming new producers on the scene, Lee Perry being one, and the other being Ghost of the Studios himself, Bunny Lee. Bunny Striker Lee may have inherited the moniker Striker from his liking of a particular TV show called The Hitch-Hiker, but it would soon stand also for the considerable hits he would obtain as he was declared producer of the year in Jamaica in 1969, 1970,1971 and 1972.For this release, we have compiled many of the great Studio hits that Bunny Lee recorded with the singers that had originally cut at the famed Studio 1. Bunny Lees sprinkling of magic over some classic tunes..the sound of Studio 1 backed up this time Bunny Striker Lees set of star musicians The Aggravators. Proving you cant keep a good tune down, or a great producer pushing forward...
