What’s not to love about this album cover? The ‘Bunny’ has escaped from his hutch and is chilling with his briefcase in the garden.

“Dubbing In The Back Yard” was a 1982 release on UK based “Black Music” record label – which goes someway in explaining the cover photo for this Dub album. The photo shows Bunny Lee relaxing in a garden that looks like it must have been taken in England…..the rabbit hutch and the tower block in the background is a bit of a giveaway.

Despite the title, King Tubby was not at the controls for this Dub release; the music was mixed at Tubby’s studio, but the actual production was all done by Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee with Prince Jammy on mixing duties.

This dub album includes some nice heavy roots tracks, with a few bass-heavy excursions into early 80s dancehall versions of riddims like the ‘Johnny Dollar riddim’ (‘Natural Glow’).
