Lee Perry/Various Artists — The Return Of Sound System Scratch

matthias banaschewski, Jul 04, 2011
I have been a Lee Perry Devotee long before I got addicted to Reggae Music.
And the Pressure Sounds Staff have released over the years excellent Reissues.
The new THE RETURN OF SOUND SYSTEM SCRATCH tops everything!
The previous Release of SOUND SYSTEM SCRATCH was already a Revelation
of the highest order, as it was filled with original sound system exclusives for the
70ties Dancehall. We nowaday Listeners would have been never be able to listen to
that stuff if there weren`t Pressure Sounds with their excellent Reissue Programm.
What makes the followup even better is the throughout excellent sonic condition
of the tracks (which were not so on the first edition due to the natural bad condition
of some acetates) and the fact, that this time we have a mixture of exclusive
Discoplates of spine and skin shivering Perry Tracks and never before released
Roots Songs like Jimmy Rileys "Darkness in the City", Candy McKenzies funky
"Long Enough" or the excellent Leo Graham track. Or listen to the amazing Dubplates of for example Bob Marley`s Natural Mystic Song (Natural Dub) or J.
Byles The Long Way (Long Dub). And there is so much more to discover!!
I kiss your feet Master Lee Rainford Perry for letting Pressure Sounds explore
your Treasure Trove of Black Ark Recordings, which will forever be THE HOLY
GRAIL OF ROOTSREGGAE. And I hope there is more to come of the truly magic
Sounds and sheer sonic Madness of Lee Perry.

    Killer double A side from the masters at Studio One. Latin inspired Tommy McCook on the one side with Sauvitt and the Skatalites on the flipside with 'Well Charge' Both well worth having. Check the sound clips before you buy as they are Jamaican pressings.

  • Scientist/Roy Cousins - Four Track 10' E.P.Scientist/Roy CousinsFour Track 10' E.P.

    Roy Cousins is primarily known for his vocal group the Royals. But working with Scientist in his prime in the early 1980s he was able to spin out some formidable versions to his excellent vocal productions. These four cuts are awesome. Seismic and heavy - check em out.
