Various Artists The Bunny

Bunny Lee is a legendary figure in Jamaica. Seen as a "godfather" for everyone from ska veterans such as Derrick Morgan and Slim Smith to ragga roughnecks like King Kong and Beenie Man, he is known as "Striker" because so many of his productions have hit big. This four CD, 101-track retrospective of his ‘60s and ‘70s work is heavy on musical quality, featuring enduring productions with singers like Cornell Campbell, Johnny Clarke, and Pat Kelly; many tracks are presented with companion sides featuring deejays U Roy, Alcapone, and Tapper Zukie. The only real problem comes on the few numbers mastered from noise-ridden vinyl. Overall, it‘s a thrilling musical ride.
