LP version. Voice Of Jamaica presents a compilation titled Randy's Studio 17 Sessions 1969-1976. In 1959, Vincent Chin opened a small record shop on the corner of East St. and Tower St, in downtown Kingston named after Randy's Records in Gallatin, Tennessee, an emporium where many of the Jamaican sound systems used to send their mail order records. Two years later, the shop moved to more spacious premises at 17 North Parade in the heart of Kingston's commercial district, where Randy's Record Mart rapidly established itself as Jamaica's leading retail and wholesale outlets. Vincent also produced records. Jamaica declared its independence in the summer of 1962 to the sound of Lord Creator's "Independent Jamaica" produced by Vincent and released on his Randy's Creative Calypso label. This is an exemplary selection of Bunny Striker Lee's recordings at Randy's Studio 17, compiled for this release. While some were recorded entirely, others are the products of Bunny's legendary mix and match approach with rhythm tracks laid at Randy's and the vocals done elsewhere. Features: Delroy Wilson, Pat Kelly, Bob Marley, Cornell Campbell, John Holt, Slim Smith, Owen Grey, Eric "Monty" Morris, Max Romeo, Johnny Clarke, Ronnie Davis, Doreen Schaeffer and Freddie McGregor. CD version includes two bonus tracks from The Clarendonians and Cornell Campbell.
