Bunny Lee Presents - Jamaican Rockers 1975-1979
The Rockers Sound (aka Steppas) came from the mid 70‰۪s and was created during sessions with The Revolutionaires band at Channel 1.
Drummer Sly Dunbar came up with a new ‰Û÷Militant‰۪ style double drumming on the snare drum that seemed to add some credence to the political /Rasta based lyrics that were so prominent around this time.
So for this compilation we have pulled together some of the best cuts from this period when producer Bunny Lee was on the top of his game and the sound in town to get on board with was ‰Û÷Rockers‰۪...
So sit back and enjoy another period in Reggae‰۪s history that still sounds as good as when it was created way back when...
