Editorial Reviews

Rockstone is a unique release, full of the true spirit of Jamaica and its people of all backgrounds. Armed with a clutch of original songs they had written, native Jamaicans Wayne Jobson and his brother Brian recorded these lost tracks with Lee 'Scratch Perry at Black Ark Studios. Songs such as Rockstone and Late September In May show Wayne as a thoughtful imaginative writer with a soulful voice and demonstrate 'The Upsetter' Lee Perry s adventurous spirit and willingness to innovate. The tracks are imbued with that classic late Black Ark sound and these Native recordings are released here for the first time. It s a rarity these days to find something from 1977 that has not been released before.

By Red Eyes on October 11, 2007
Format: Audio CD
It has been an interesting few months for Upsetter fanatics, intent on picking up minor and lost classics from the Black Ark period -- First Makasound dug up the commendable Slickers record ( John Martyn also cut versions to some of the songs interestingly enough ), and now Pressure Sounds have re released the intriguing Native "Rock stone" album.

If you want something unusual, fresh, a serious departure from "roots by numbers" , this eerie album will fascinate -- it is spacious, psychotropic and hallucinatory, with deep lyrical metaphor, all musical conventions set free by the classic Gnostic Black Ark treatment.

Native had the following to say about the period with Scratch -- "One night in August 1977 Boris Gardiner took me on a trip to see Lee 'Scratch' Perry at his Black Ark Studio....The Black Ark was like a medieval space station with Scratch at the controls voicing the U.K. artist Robert Palmer. I watched in amazement as Scratch drove the mixing board ( and )extracted his mystical sound. ( All Lee Perry had was a ) little four track machine -- so you can be sure that it was the MAN and not the machine that was creating the magic here!"

The opener, "Rockstone" has a deep garage psyche vocal melody. A cyclical cymbal sound reminiscent of "A Love Supreme" gives the tune space to breathe, lifting the composition higher than the claustrophobic lyrics' preoccupations, centring as they do around tales of prisons,cloisters,loneliness,seclusion,sun beaten arid places and persecution.

"Black Tracks Version" sounds very similar to dark and wintry mid 70's inner city UK dub -- Think echoes of Macka B's UK production, "Nation Fiddler" on the Congo's label.
