The productions of producer Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee were so extensive in the early to
mid 1970’s 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 we look at the Jackpot label and have compiled a collection
of some its finest dub cuts.

Jackpot records was formed in the early 1970’s as a subsidiary of Trojan Records
to handle the ever growing output of Producer and hit maker from Jamaica,
Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee. Bunny worked in all the Jamaican studios and as an
independent operator would licence his product to all the different labels in
England and America. Bunny was at the birth of dub music and worked closely
with Dubmaster King Tubby ( Osbourne Ruddock ).Having his masters stored
at Tubby’s, allowed his rhythms to be worked on by Tubby, whether that was to
remix or add new vocal tracks to the exsisting tape. The new interest in the
dubbed version would now also see the new single being worked on for its version side.

Version had hit big around this time and many records were brought for its flip side
dub of the vocal cut. This was sometimes the side that was proving so popular at the
sound system dances, where the records were tried and tested. So inevitably nearly
all Jackpot records carried its dub counterpart. We have gathered here what we
think are some of the best dubcuts from this label and era .

Hope you enjoy the set.............
