THIS GUY IS UNBELIEVABLE

Scratch is one of the best roots and dub musicians I've ever heard. He ranks up there with King Tubby and Augustus Pablo. Honestly one of my favorite songs of his is "FLUTE SONG". I played this song out back in high school when my friends first turned me on to the genre. If you love dub and roots, Lee "Scratch" Perry must be in your collection to be called a true collection.
Wow. How can any Lee Perry collection be 12 songs long? I don't know. His genius deserves much more time to amuse the listener, that said, there are much better collections if you are willing to spend more money.
However, if one did have to pick 12 tracks, these are not a bad 12. Roots Train, War in a Babylon, Police and Thieves are EXCELLENT! Even some lesser known songs like Hay Fever and Dread Lion (one of his best, in my opinion).
People Funny boy
Any collection with Dreadlocks in Moonlight is worth having in your collection. And people tend to forget that Roots Train is on the same original CS as Police and Thieves, and both are here on this nice compilation.
roast fish and cornbread!
not the best collection of lee perry tracks, but a great version of roast fish and cornbread!
