The productions of producer Bunny "Striker" Lee were so extensive in the early to mid-1970s that labels were created just to handle his ever-expanding output. Three labels that came about during this time when dub was king were Jackpot, Justice, and Attack. Here, Jamaican Recordings look at the Jackpot label and have compiled a collection of some of its finest dub cuts. Jackpot Records was formed in the early 1970s as a subsidiary of Trojan Records to handle the output from the hit-maker from Jamaica, Bunny "Striker" Lee. Bunny was present at the birth of dub and worked closely with dub master King Tubby. Having his masters stored at Tubby's allowed his rhythms to be worked on by Tubby, whether it was to remix or add vocals to an existing tape, and the new interest in the dubbed version would see the next single being worked on for its version side. Jamaican Recordings have gathered here what they think are some of the best dub cuts from this label and era. CD includes four bonus tracks.
