Bunny Lee - Dreads Enter the Gates with Praise 3xLP
Label: Soul Jazz
Soul Jazz Records presents this new collection featuring the heavy '70s roots reggae of Bunny Lee – a living legend, one of the last of the great Jamaican record producers who helped shape and define reggae music in the 1970s. Featuring some of the heaviest Jamaican artists including Johnny Clarke, King Tubby, Dillinger, Prince Jazzbo, Tommy McCook, The legendary Aggrovators, The Mighty Diamonds and more, the album is a rollercoaster ride of rare, deep and classic '70s roots, dub and DJ sounds. During this era "flying cymbals," crashing reverbs, dark echoing thunderclap gunshots and other "implements of sound" filled his record productions as Lee explored the outer limits of dub with his friend King Tubby in the mix on wild versions that accompanied any 45. A Bunny Lee record provides a creative and mysterious hidden guide to reggae music itself, a double-sided three-minute intangible history lesson etched in wax.
