The Aggrovators were one of Jamaica’s finest session bands put together by the hit make from Jamaica Bunny Striker Lee. The group would produce some of the hardest rhythms cut at the legendary Channel 1 studio. These tracks would provide the backbone to songs that were usually voiced over at King Tubby’s own studio.These cuts here represent a selection of some of those fine rhythms selected together for the first time. The Aggrovators were a group of Reggae musicians that usually featured Carlton ’Santa’ Davis on drums playing alongside Robbie Shakespeare on bass with other musicians addedlike Earl ’Chinna’ Smith on guitar and Tommy McCook and Vin Gordon and Lennox Brown added for horn arrangements, Keyboards and organ duties normally fell to Ansel Collins and Bernard ’Touter’ Harvey. Jamaican Recordings have compiled some great tracks recorded by this fantastic group of musicians and focused on those cut on Channel 1 studios to give you a feel of what those times were like.
