Official release of film maker Howard Johnson's legendary Channel 4 history of reggae music series Deep Roots. Originally shown on Channel 4 as a series of six half hour programmes back in the early eighties, nearly a quarter of a century ago, it obviously fails to tell the story from that point on, the fact that there is no equivelent documentary of the music since then is nothing short of a crying shame. However, despite this, and other quibbles, the amount of priceless footage this delivers is well worth the investment. This DVD contains the second and third chapters; 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 2 - 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.
Running Time 100 minutes. NTSC All Region.
