Another interesting Rock Steady collection from Drum & Bass in Japan. Its based around record producer Bunny Lee and records released on his various labels from 1967/8, when they began to take over from Island. No information is given about the tracks, but we are treated to a print out sheet with the original 45 label scans. Bunny Lee had a major roll in establishing reggae labels in the UK, his tracks were issued by the Palmer brothers and formed part of the early Trojan issues. Max Romeo had a hit with Wet Dream in 1969, despite the BBC banning the record from air-play. Don T. Lee is Bunny's brother and he can be heard on the final track. All are by the way well worth the cost of this CD, and it comes in a cardboard box. Issued on Drum & Bass Rock A Shacka DBCD-014 2006 Japan
