Kingston Sounds LP 50 review

Countless incredible records were made in Kingston between 1968 and 1971 that have never been able to lose the stigma of being defined as ‘skinhead reggae’ but in Jamaica the term never meant anything. However Bunny Lee’s Agro sounds meant a great deal both at home and away. They were tougher than tough, rougher than rough, kicked like a ‘bovver’ boot and were sharper than a razor cut trim. Raw, pureand undiluted they hit every time… some eventroubled the UK National Charts. Bunny Lee first learnt the ways and means of creating hit records during his early
years as a dancer on ‘Teenage Danc Party’ plugging records for Coxsone Dodd, Duke Reid and Leslie Kong. He moved into record production in 1967 tearing up the Jamaican charts with The Uniques and ‘Let Me Go Girl’. The hits never stopped and, alongside close associates and occasionally close rivals, men such as
Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and Clancy Eccles Striker began to create a brand new style that pushed the music forward in startling new directions. The rhythms became faster, more aggressive and reggae was born.
