Pressure Sounds meet Bunny Lee

Out now on Pressure Sounds four 7″ singles featuring Bunny Lee productions, three from the early 70’s and a single 60’s rocksteady double sider. They all come on impressive replica labels and with printed die cut sleeves.

  • Slim Smith – Turning Point/The Aggrovators – Version (Lee’s)
    One of two Slim Smith sides in this batch of releases, this was first issued in 1972 on the Jackpot label. A great tune that demonstrates (in case anyone was wondering!) what a superb singer Slim Smith was, it has a lovely dub too.

  • Slim Smith – Stand Up And Fight/The Aggrovators – Dr Seaton
    Not quite as great as Turning Point but a quality tune all the same. The flip side is a version with a Moog type organ on it, this was originally issued on the flip side of a deejay cut on the rhythm by obscure deejay Jerry Lewis.

  • Lester Stirling – The Big Job/The Aggrovators – Version (Attack)
    A lovely saxaphone cut to Lemon Tree by Johnny Clarke from 1974.

  • Don Tony Lee – Cool Cool Rocksteady/Glen Adams & Alva Lewis – S-H-I I’m Shocking (Carifta)
    Two great rocksteady cuts on the You Don’t Care rhythm. Bunny Lee cut at least one other version on this rhythm; Lester Stirling ’67 and then Sir Collins used it too for Rico And J.Satchmo – Shock Steady.
