Lee Perry - Scratch Attack! mp3 album

Lee "Scratch" Perry OD (born Rainford Hugh Perry; 20 March 1936) is a Jamaican music producer and inventor noted for his innovative studio techniques and production style. Perry was a pioneer in the 1970s development of dub music with his early adoption of remixing and studio effects to create new instrumental or vocal versions of existing reggae tracks.

Tracks 1 to 10 are from "Scratch And Company - Chapter 1 The Upsetters" Tracks 11 to 22 are from album "Blackboard Jungle Dub". Above, tracklist as it appears on disc. On back cover and booklet, track 1 appears as "Stratch The Dub Organizer", track 7 as "Stratch Walking" and track 22 as "Setta Iration Dub".

The material is weirdly wonderful and represents some of Perry's earliest and most unrestrained efforts at dub madness. Issued on one disc, they ebb and flow seamlessly (set your CD player or playlist on "shuffle" for proof), with tracks like "Scratch the Dub Organizer" and "Dub from Africa" especially delicious. This is a great way to dig deep into Perry's unique mindset without spending a ton of money.

Scratch Attack! is a single CD of two vinyl albums, Chapter 1-The Upsetters and Blackboard Jungle Dub, a couple of gems from Lee Perry's golden age in the Black Ark Studio during the early-to-mid-'70s. As such, it's some pretty primeval-and prime-dub of antique Upsetter tracks mixed up with a few scattered vocals featuring artists like Johnny Love and the Towerchanters, Val Bennett, Devon Iron, and, of course, Lee Perry himself. This was all done on four-track, although as the original vinyl sleeve notes said, Scratch makes them "sound like sixteen. In the book about Perry, "People Funny Boy," it is meantioned how the producer got these original Scratch tapes in a fairly sketchy way, but that he was also a big fan. Oh well, nobody's perfect. Still, for the money, a much better choice is the disc "Dub-Triptych. Trojan Records released the double disc "Dub-Triptych" in 2004, and it is FANTASTIC.
