“What more can be said about the legend that is Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry! He has been recording and producing music from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s ,90’s and beyond in some cases even from outer space!
Here we see Lee Perry and Mad Professor give some classic Perry cuts a dub over. Cuts like ‘Zion Blood’ are re-recorded, re-vamped and re-freshed from the version that appeared on Perry’s Classic Super Ape LP. ‘Moving On’ is another Dubtastic take on the classic Perry produced Bob Marley cut ‘Keep On Moving’ and ‘Doctor Shit’ see’s Lee re-visit an old Ska classic Doctor Dick!
Lee is the ultimate cameleon constantly changing with the times. He has played many roles, from singer, producer through to musician and engineer.
Some would say Lee Perrys most successful period was through the 1960’s and 1970’s and this is true but he has never stopped working, constantly touring, making records and producing when required.
Black Ark Classic Songs is a true testiment to a legend who has worked with 80% of the foundation reggae artists like Max Romeo and Bob Marley.
Black Ark Classic Songs is Lee Perry at his very best. AGAIN”-Proper Music
