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.

  • Jimmy Riley  - Gunman of JAJimmy Riley Gunman of JA

    A previously unreleased version of Jimmy Rileys thoughtful Gunman of JA. As relevant now than when it was originally released according to Jimmy. Both sides come from dub plates that were re-mixed at King Tubbys. Tougher leaner and deeper than the original mixes. The A side is not on the new album ‘Live it to know it’. Essential roots music from Jimmy Riley backed by Sly and Robbie. Comes in a hand stamped sleeve.

  • Jimmy Riley - Everybody Needs MoneyJimmy RileyEverybody Needs Money

    Two cuts of ‘Everybody needs money’ on the A side. A sparse moody observation on social inequality ‘It's the talk of the town, no money going around’. Sound familiar? It came first time around on the ‘Full Moon’ label and has never been re-pressed. The B-side, which has 2 cuts of Reggae Music, also came on the Full Moon label. Engineered by Scientist and was probably recorded slightly later than the A side. Both the versions of Reggae Music are not included on the ‘Live it to know it’ album. Comes in a hand stamped sleeve.

  • Jimmy Riley  - Live It To Know ItJimmy Riley Live It To Know It

    Seventeen track set of Jimmy Riley self productions. Some real obscurities mixed with classic material. Jimmy started out with the Uniques as a harmony singer and then moved on to become a lead vocalist after Slim Smiths death. Jimmy worked with Jamaica's best producers as well as crafting an excellent body of work that were released on his own labels such Pee, Yes and Full Moon. This set focus's on his his self produced protest song between 1975 to 1985.
