  • When in the second half of the 1960s the soulful rocksteady replaced the fast ska, not only a new generation of musicians pushed into the limelight. The two Jamaican music dominating "sound system godfathers" Clement "Coxsone" Dodd (Studio One) and Arthur "Duke" Reid also got serious competition

    Among others Lee Perry, King Tubby, Joe Gibbs, Clancy Eccles and Edward O'Sullivan Lee, known as Bunny "Striker" Lee, appeared on the field. Lee decisively determined the early time of Reggae with productions like "Better Must Come" by Delroy Wilson (1971). Also many other singers like especially Cornell Campbell and Alton Ellis celebrated their greatest successes under the aegis of the producer with countless lover's and roots titles

    Consequently, Lee was named Jamaica's producer of the year four times in a row between 1969 and 72. During those years, Lee worked for Coxsone Dodd. In Studio One, Lee naturally benefited from the collaboration with the Aggrovators, the prominent house band around the reggae twins Sly & Robbie, Earl "Chinna" Smith, Ansel Collins and Ossie Hibbert

    The compilation "Strikes Back" contains some of the most beautiful songs Lee recorded with the Aggrovators and singers like Dennis Brown, John Holt, Alton Ellis, Delroy Wilson, Ken Boothe, Horace Andy, Jackie Edwards or Cornell Campbell.
