    SUPERB HEAVYWEIGHT new Rockers book! 300+ pages hardback 9" x 12" THE BOMB!

    Rockers, The Harder They Come and Babylon are THE 3 definitive reggae films of our time and for us ROCKERS (1978) reigns supreme as the hippest and coolest of all of them. Originally a documentary the film starred an all star reggae line-up - Leroy 'Horsemouth Wallace', Burning Spear, Gregory Isaacs, Big Youth, Dillinger, Jacob Miller - all feature in the film about the Jamaican music scene and are all in this fabulous new book.

    An invaluable collection of photographs taken during the conception of the CLASSIC reggae film Rockers by the director Ted Bafaloukos, awesomely captured in this wicked new book, painstakingly put together by the director's wife!

    Production stills and photos taken during the era by Bafaloukos form the visual, cinematic backbone of the tome, faithfully rendering the amazing people, styles, and locations in living, breathing colour.

    Add to this the director’s intense experiences in Jamaica and New York between ’75 – ’78 which provide the substance of the scorching stories within, including; gunshots at his first ever reggae concert in Brooklyn, the director’s bizarre arrest for suspicion of being a CIA operative, paranoia at the Bob Marley compound, musicians-turned actors’ “rude boy” antics, and naturally, sympathetic, highly descriptive recollections of the music that first drew Bafaloukos into Jamaica’s music and culture.
