Definitive Lee "Scratch" Perry Anthology on Double LP!

Arguably the greatest Jamaican record producer of all time, Lee "Scratch" Perry was instrumental in transforming the island's national sound throughout the sixties and seventies with his unique approach to music making, pushing the music beyond previously perceived boundaries.

To mark the first anniversary of his passing, the very best of his work is showcased across a number of products, all of which effectively demonstrate why Perry was a widely venerated figure for so long.

The 2x gatefold LP set collection focuses upon the legendary music maker's best-known productions from the sixties and seventies, performed by some of the giants of Jamaican music, with both extensive notes on the man whose talent and imagination took reggae to new heights of excellence.

It would be nearly impossible to compile a truly definitive anthology of Perry's daunting body of work - even an exhaustive dozen-disc box would likely miss some essentials and leave several corners of his discography untouched. That said, King Scratch's format, focusing mostly on singles while including numerous rare and alternate versions, makes it both an ideal starting point for novices as well as a must for longtime fans...
