    4 killer dub plates from Striker Lee. Not on the vinyl 'Next Cut' album. All hot and heavy and previously un-released versions. The first 50 come in a hand made recycled card sleeve made from the left over 'Full Up' sleeves. Top draw.

  • Bunny 'Striker' Lee & Friends  - Next CutBunny 'Striker' Lee & Friends Next Cut

    Just when you thought the Bunny Lee catalogue was exhausted a rummage around Bunnys never ending supply of tapes has brought you this gem. Next Cut has a plethora of outtakes alternate mixes and slipped down the back of the sofa gems!!! A fine album that gives you a listen to the studio banter and a small talk that permeated Kingstons music scene.

    Clear slick production on the A side as Ernie Smith asks 'Tell Me Why' backed by the kind of rocksteady Mr Lynn Tait. The Flipside again features Lynn Tait with Mr Dooby. Nice rocksteady from Merritone. Lovely pressing from Dub Store.
