DEEP ROOTS MUSIC: BLACK ARK & BUNNY LEE STORY

Posted by Anne van Lingen on

Watch part 3 & 4 of Deep Roots Music, film maker Howard Johnson's legendary Channel 4 series on the history of Jamaican music, here. Originally shown as a series of six half hour programmes back in the early eighties, the Deep Roots Music is narrated by Mikey Dread.

Part 3 - Bunny Lee Story, examines the legendary producer and his modus operandi with some great footage of Jackie Edwards and Johnny Clarke in King Tubbys studio, with Prince Jammy at the controls.

Part 4 - Black Ark, calls in on a frazzled Lee Perry in the ruins of his famed studio. Also includes superb footage of Skully, The Mighty Diamonds, Bob Marley and others. Essential.
