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.

  • One Love Books  - Sound System CultureOne Love Books Sound System Culture

    A really excellent book from Al Fingers 'One Love Books' who are fast gaining a reputation for being the premier label for all things related to Jamaican Culture. Can't recommend this highly enough. Lavish thoughtful and done with real panache.
    Huddersfield a town in the North of England was always known as a hotbed for Reggae Music. This book explains why and how. Tasty.

  • One Love Books  - Clarks in JamaicaOne Love Books Clarks in Jamaica

    The First book from One Love books that came out a while a go. If you missed it then we would recommend it. Nominally a book about shoes!!! But actually lifts gives you an insight into the rich cultural heritage of an iconic English Shoe brand and how it permeated all aspects of Jamaican life. Tempted to mention the 'Sole' of Jamaica but we wont.
