Dub Treasures from The Black Ark – Rare Dubs 1976-1978
Black Ark Studio’s Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry is heralded as a prominent reggae and dub artist and this single epitomises his greatness.
To anyone who has not already come across the work of Perry, this is an ideal opportunity to listen to just a small insight into his brilliance. From this starting point, you can tap into a huge catalogue of music that he produced, performed (or both) such as Max Romeo’s booming War in a Babylon or Roast Fish and Cornbread a double-A side with Free the Weed, both performed by Perry himself. There is also Police & Thieves, showcasing the falsetto vocals of Junior Murvin and Party Time, featuring the melodic sound of The Heptones.
