• lee scratch perry Black Ark Classic Songs (LP, £14.50)

    label: Ariwa Sounds

    Classic Lee Scratch Perry tracks given the Lee Scratch Perry- Mad Professor treatment / Mad Professor Produced / Features Black Steel and the Panafricanist. What more can really be said about the legend that is Lee Scratch Perry! He has been recording and producing music from the 1960’s, 1970’s, 1980’s,1990’s and beyond in some cases even from outer space! Recent years have seen him collaborate with the Mad Professor. The vinyl LP sold fast and for good reason as here we see Lee Perry and Mad Professor give some classic Perry cuts a dub over. Cuts like ‘Zion Blood’ are re-vamped and refreshed from the version that appeared on Perry’s Classic Super Ape LP. ‘Moving On’ is a Dubtastic take on the classic Lee Perry produced Bob Marley cut ‘Keep On Moving’ and ‘Doctor Shit’ see’s Lee Perry revisit an old Ska classic ‘Doctor Dick’! Lee Scratch Perry is the ultimate chameleon constantly changing with the times. He has played many roles, from singer and producer through to musician and engineer. Some would say Lee Perrys most successful period was through the 1960’s and 1970’s and this is true but he has never stopped working, constantly touring, making records and producing when required. Black Ark Classic Songs is a true testiment to a legend who has worked with 80% of the foundation reggae artists like Max Romeo, The Congos and Bob Marley. Black Ark Classic Songs is Lee Perry at his very best. AGAIN. Track Listing 1Zion Blood 2Run Obeah Run 3Egypt for My Ransom 4Doctor Shit 5Dub Fire 6Spirits Speak 7Telepathic 8No More Roast Fish
