Check out a few more clips from the Deep Roots Music documentary. First up is Prince Jammy wreckin’ up di mixing board and servin’ up a heavy version of Junior Reid’s “Jailhouse” with Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee overseeing the production and dropping some nice breakdancing moves. Wow! Mikey Dread provides the intro as he discusses King Tubby and his studio in Waterhouse. Scientist provides the outro as he enters the studio while blazin’ up the chalice. Studio kinda cloudy! Classic!
Second up is Johnny Clarke voicing a version of “None Shall Escape the Judgement”, his classic tune produced by Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee in 1975. The original cut ushered in the era of rockers and steppers. The original (and this version) remains one of my favorite 45s of all-time. Wicked ruff!
The final installment is Tommy McCook and the Skatalites (early-80s incarnation) droppin’ a classic rocksteady riddim on the cut titled “Dynamite”, the B-side version of Hopeton Lewis’ “Boom-Shacka-Lacka”. What’s missing from this sample is the beginning segment of the tune which features Scully killin’ an instrument that resembles a Flex-A-Tone inna very enthusiastic fashion. You can check that when you check the film. Steady vibes!
