The Aggrovators - Dubbing It Studio 1 Style LP
Label: Jamaican Recordings
The Aggrovators were one of Jamaica's finest session bands, many of the tracks you know and love from the '70s reggae scene probably featured this group of musicians in some shape or form. The band was put together by Bunny "Striker" Lee, one of Jamaica's formidable producers, who, with no studio of his own, had to rely on buying studio time from the existing establishments, such as Randy's Studio or Channel 1. The updating of Studio 1 classics, which in some cases were reworkings of American R&B tunes, was common practice. The rhythms were much loved favorites and there was the added incentive that the musicians knew the tracks inside and out. This set of dubs are straight from the master tapes of such sessions orchestrated by the man Bunny Lee himself, no one knew better – you can't keep a good tune down never mind a great one...
