Information

Following on from the other two highly successful releases 'Voodooism' and 'Produced and Directed By' Pressure Sounds will release their third album by legendary Jamaican producer, Lee Perry, on the 30th of April 2001.

'Divine Madness ...Definitely' is probably the strongest of the three and is a two CD package with one of the discs devoted to an hour's worth of music and the second featuring a twenty five minute interview with Lee 'Scratch' Perry himself. The interview with Steve Barker and Roger Eagle took place in the early eighties and 'Scratch' is as at his most witty, lucid and entertaining talking about everything from his time at Studio One to his work with Bob Marley.

The musical CD contains many highlights and all the tunes featured are rare collectors items. 'Woman and Money' by Denzil Dennis dates from early '73 and is a splendid boogie-woogie style piano excursion with soulful vocals. The track from Junior Byles, one of Jamaica's most talented vocalists, 'Africa We Are Going Home' is as rare as hen's teeth! Milton Henry, The Viceroys, Eric Donaldson, Augustus Pablo and Jimmy Riley also contribute sterling performances to this fine album.
