Day 304 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Bunny Lie Lie & Lee Van Cleef - Mr. Dynamite
Let's keep it cool with another rub-a-dub masterpiece! This one is by Bunny Lie Lie featuring deejay Lee Van Cleef and it's called "Mr. Dynamite." Produced by the great Jah Thomas and again with the Roots Radics flawlessly setting the mood, this one was also pressed by Greensleeves in 1983. Lie Lie's silky smooth voice shines through on a revamped, horn-punctuated take of the Boxing riddim that floats along as easy as the waning summer breeze. And we haven't even gotten to Lee Van Cleef's performance on the latter-half of the platter... absolutely top-notch! But it must be said, Lee Van has had previous Boxing experience... a couple years before he was doing deejay duties following Cornell Campbell's "Boxing Around" on the Joe Gibbs label. Forward Mr. Van Cleef!
