This was a really good movie and I thoroughly recommend any music fan to check it our either at a screening or DVD (by Xmas) or when it comes 'pon BBC2 or 4 or Sky Arts. The story of Bunny's life in music was told chronologically with every known archive clip of Bunny, more interviews than you could shake a stick at including several with Bunny, tunes galore from rock steady to dub, countless insights into the creative and business process all strung together with a relaxed but informative narration from Dennis Alcapone and some fun animation. It was better than the Marley film IMO.

The premiere was a star-studded occasion on a warm late summer evening right in the heart of Carnival country with red carpet appearances from Tappa Zukie, Dennis Alcapone, BB Seaton, Ossie 'Black Solidarity' Thomas, John Dub Vendor, Lol Dub Vendor, Papa Face, Rootsman, Wassie One, Daddy A, Dubplate Pearl, Tiny T, Mark Solution, Daddy Vego, Naoko The Rock, Ray Hurford, One-ee Johnson, aka Richie, southlondonstephen, Terrence Lo, Mark Professor, and, of course, Bunny Lee. Director Diggory Henrick and producer Frank Jamaica Recordings were also present to receive the plaudits. It was quite a night.
