Editorial Reviews

This 2012 collection pulls together undocumented Jamaican singles (and one Dub plate) that beautifully showcases Perry's development as a producer. It was his desire to push musical boundaries that set him apart from other Reggae producers.

Format:Audio CD
Pressure Sounds has another winner from the seminal reggae producer Lee "Scratch" Perry. This is a definite 5 star CD--compared to other music CDs you can buy--but actually a little worse than Lee Perry's best work (I would institute a rating system strictly for Scratch, but frankly I think all these CDs are essential.)

First, for hardcore Lee Perry fans, these songs have not been released on CD before and are extremely well recorded. So you guys know you have to have this CD!

For reggae fans in general: these songs are either instrumentals or vocal tracks--these are early reggae songs done in the bright, non-dub style typical of the early seventies. This style is a bit less radical and bass driven than the later work--while the linear notes are not clear about where the recordings were made, I suspect these are all recordings made previous to Lee Perry opening his legendary Black Ark studio. They have the bright feel of recordings made in the Federal recording studio. No real radical dub effects--but great vocals, great lyrics, and great covers of R&B.

For music fans (I kind of picture you as holding the great Spike Lee's "For Music lovers only" and wondering if you should buy this CD as a lark)--Lee Perry released some of the best reggae ever made and while I can't really imagine anyone having this as the first reggae CD they bought, it has infectious rhythms and fine vocals--I can't imagine that you won't enjoy it.

It is less radical and stunning than Lee Perry's later work, and if you consider yourself strictly a dubman, this is not the CD for you--but I am truly enjoying it.

Those who have read my reviews realize my wife has a very low opinion of the great Lee Scratch Perry. SHE LIKES THIS ONE!!! She stated--"Sounds like he made it before he took too many drugs." She is somewhat cynical.....
