Why Should You

Why Should You


Information

An obscure Black Ark rarity that was produced by Phil Pratt at the Black Ark. 'Why should you' has a strong Lee Perry influence both in the vocal style and in the production. Bobby Kalphat's rhythmic melodica stabs away alongside Roy Graham's vocals. A funky 45 that has never been re-pressed since its original small first run on the Sunshot label. Has a nice version on the filpside. Comes in a handmade recycled Pressure sounds sleeve.

  • 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!
