ROCKERS 25th Anniversary Edition (15)
“One of the Greatest Reggae Music Movies Ever”
Wienerworld proudly presents the 25th Anniversary DVD edition of the classic reggae film Rockers (WNRD2329) on 25 July 2005. This special edition comes packed with new bonus features and deluxe full colour illustrated booklet.
A riotous burst of energy and colour, almost documentary in style, Rockers is a cameo-packed gutsy thriller of the dread-locked, ganja-smoking drummer Leroy ‘Horsemouth’ Wallace’s attempts to succeed in the cut throat Jamaican music biz which provides much insight, amusement and education. The cast reads like the ultimate Reggae Hall Of Fame, featuring some of the leading musicians and producers of the day: Peter Tosh, Gregory Isaacs, Lee Perry, Dennis Brown, Jacob Miller & Inner Circle, Bunny Wailer, Third World, Big Youth, The Heptones, Kiddus I, Robbie Shakespeare, Leroy Smart, Dillinger and the awesome Burning Spear.
The film captures reggae at its musical apex with a vibrant and magnificent reggae soundtrack now digitally re-mastered from the original 35mm film made in 1978. Witty and unpretentious, the DVD even comes with a glossary of ‘Rasta Patois’.
