Lee 'Scratch' Perry is one of the most important musical figures of the 20th Century and a unique entity whose works have forever changed the way we think about recorded sound. Perry is rightly hailed as a true originator through the sonic innovations he pioneered at his legendary Black Ark studio during the late 1970s. However, few have heard the incredible first set of recordings he made in the ska years at Studio One during the early to mid 1960s. We are particularly pleased to now present Chicken Scratch Deluxe Edition with a number of bonus tracks from the same era and, for the first time on CD, the original single mixes of 13 of these ska scorchers.
