V/A, Bunny Lee: Dreads Enter The Gates With Praise (2019)
“Striker” – Bunny Lee – one of the architects! Here he is making the selections for one of the Soul Jazz Records label’s fantastic compilations; this a representation of some of the heavy-hitters of the 1970s and is a must-have for reggae-heads. It was recommended to me as a great one-stop shop; triple vinyl (at the price of a single or double only – very good value for money). And man, what a set of tunes. Many I know. Quite a few that are new to me too. I’ve only listened to this right through once – it’s only been in the house a week or so – but I’m very happy to have this one to explore. A great thing to have.
