Roots Selection inna Classical Style Pt 5 - Striker Lee special 1st slice

Roots Selection inna Classical Style Pt 5 - Striker Lee special 1st slice

Playing tracks by

Cornell Campbell, Errol Dunkley, Rico Rodriguez, Dennis Alcapone, The Aggrovators and more.

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global roots reggae chart, 1st in the global vinyl only chart, 5th in the global dub chart and 11th in the global reggae chart.

The late great Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee hardly needs any introduction. A selection of early-ish productions from the Striker, and the odd other cut on same riddim, which he often shared with other producers. Lots of King Tubby dubs too.. some true Dub masterpieces. Bunny & Tubbs were close and he spent many a day at Tubby’s Waterhouse studio. Focus here on the deeper downbeat roots, mainly pre-flyers (flying cymbals) era…though some cuts from that era are featured too. I do love the odd flyers but in small doses only. Many personal faves on this one, from big classics like ‘No born yah’ and the Horace Andy and Linval classics, to more obscure ones like the ‘Repatriation’ cuts and Freddy McGreggor later cut of Al Campell’s classic Rasta time. If interested in King Tubby, check out the top-notch book by Thibault Ehrengardt (One of the best Reggae/JA culture writers ever, IMO - behind the legendary Natty Dread magazine-France...all his books are worth a read)



Great selections. I enjoyed reading the tubby book! You played two of my fave tubby dubs (Inna fine style & don't try and use me) big up :)
