Lee Perry & The Upsetters — The Return of Sound System Scratch

Mick Sleeper, Apr 12, 2011
Return Of Sound System Scratch is arguably a stronger collection than Sound System Scratch. Sound quality is better throughout (although audiophiles always seem to find something to moan about when it comes to reggae) and the choice of material – from mind bending dub plates to deep roots tunes, most of which are previously unreleased – is outstanding. Return Of Sound System Scratch proves that we're not scraping the bottom of the barrel when it comes to Lee Perry releases, because Scratch had a very deep barrel.

    Both sides of this Treasure Isle pearl are lovely. In particular the 'Sweet Lorna'. Well presented and pressed. Comes from the Lionel Messi of rocksteady (although Messi is possibly taller) Tommy Rock a Shacka of Japan.

  • Baba Brooks Band  - Flames in the streetBaba Brooks Band Flames in the street

    Ouch!! This is bad. Meaning very good. The 'Flames in the Street' is a dizzy vamp that is totally hypnotic. If only music being made now was still this vital. I'm Gonna Move on is basically in the same groove. Essential!!
