Dub reggae has undergone an astonishing renaissance in recent years. The marketplace has seen many dub releases but none as heavy as this Lee 'Scratch' Perry dub bonanza. Taken primarily from the B-sides of Jamaican singles, this release captures 'Scratch,' the Mighty Upsetter, in the prime of his career. Eighteen genuine dub versions of many mid/late '70s hits by artists like the Congos, Devon Russell, Junior Murvin, Junior Delgado, Max Romeo, Junior Byles, and Perry himself. This is heavy dub from the Upsetter, recorded at the Black Ark Studio 1976-77, stamped with its unmistakable sound and capturing Scratch in the prime of his career, never collected on CD before.
