Information

An excellent compilation of Horace Andy material from the early seventies. Produced by Phil Pratt and only ever previously released in Jamaica. 16 tracks on the CD and 14 on the single vinyl. Horace Andys soulful distinctive vocals float over driving rhythms. Pratt's own talents as a singer meant he could supply the harmonies as well as the production. Horace Andy was arguably at his peak during this period. Fresh from his brilliant work at Studio One 'Get Wise' has a mixture of love songs and conscious material. Comes with a free postcard when you buy direct from Pressure Sounds. A joy from start to finish.

  • Bunny Lee & Friends  - Tape RollingBunny Lee & Friends Tape Rolling

    In 1971, despite his run of hits, Bunny Lee was still having to support himself with freelance producing at Dynamic Sounds, but by 1974 he was fully independent and poised to dominate Jamaican music in the mid 70’s. The tracks on this compilation capture that moment of transition, when the smaller ghetto producers were taking over from the older musical establishment.
    Listening to Bunny’s unreleased master tapes, what bursts out of the speakers is the energy and excitement of the whole production process, from the studio chatter of the musicians to the sonic experiments at the mixing desk. These pioneering steps in deejaying and dub were the launch pad for remix culture and the core production techniques of today, a creative explosion that altered the shape of our popular culture.

    In the words of I Roy, “Striker Lee, him have the key!
