5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!! September 1, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a very honest and accurate story of one of the most talented and by far, underrated musicians of our time. Mr. Perry is truly on his own wave-length, but, he speaks from the heart, nonetheless. Finally, an official documentary about the Godfather of, Rap, Dub, House, Trip-House, Drum and Bass!! A must for any music lovers, especially those who love Reggae music and are interested in it's foundation/roots.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well----------- February 21, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this because I love his music. I enjoyed the first half, but then It just got weird-- and started to drag on----------------- and on. I found myself hoping it would end because I was bound and determined to watch it all after paying for it.

3.0 out of 5 stars for collectors December 30, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Yes, it has archival footage I've never seen before, but wouldn't watch this too often - once every few years? It also has a somber narrator. Why? I suppose there are many narrative styles that may have been annoying, but a little bit more energy would have been better. And you don't really have to try and create a point and keep pushing it home repeatedly, let the viewers decide.

4.0 out of 5 stars What an incredible man September 17, 2013
By AF
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw Scratch perform live without fully knowing who he was. After reading his Wiki page, I became even more curious as to outrageous life so I purchased this DVD. It is incredible to think he basically invented dub and reggae! This DVD illustrates Scratch's life and portrays his legendary influence on the music industry.
