Countless incredible records were made in Kingston between 1968 and 1971 that have never been able to lose the stigma of being described as "Skinhead Reggae," but in Jamaica the term never meant anything. However, Bunny Lee's aggro sounds were tougher than tough, rougher than rough, kicked like a "bovver" boot and were sharper then a razor-cut trim. Raw, pure, and undiluted every time. Some even troubled the UK national charts. To say the man and his music dominated at the time would be a complete understatement. "Striker" was everywhere, travelling between Kingston, where he opened his Agro Sounds record shop at 101 Orange Street, and London, where he set up his Unity label with the Palmer Brothers for the exclusive release of his productions and his Jackpot subsidiaries with both Trojan and Pama Records. Ubiquitous doesn't even cover it. This compilation will help point you in the direction of some of the best music from this often-overlooked period from one of the greatest producers ever -- "The Aggro Man" himself, Bunny Lee. CD version includes two bonus tracks. Includes tracks by Lester Sterling & Stranger Cole, Derrick Morgan, Donnie Elbert, Slim Smith, Delroy Wilson, U Roy & Lennox Brown, Bunny Lee Allstars, Pat Kelly, Max Romeo, Roy Shirley, Winston Williams, Slim Smith, and Tommy McCook.
