180g Audiophile Vinyl Triple LP!

Lee 'Scratch' Perry is a pioneer of dub music and worked together with artists such as Bob Marley and the Wailers, The Clash and The Beastie Boys. He passed away in 2021 at the age of 85 and will be remembered as a true musical icon.

This legendary album of Lee Perry's The Upsetters brings together the very best of Jamaican reggae music. Some very rare tracks and artists are collected on this record, such as Junior Murvin's "Cross Over", Windston Heywood's "Long, Long Time" and Eric Donaldson's "Freedom Street".

Build The Ark is a 3LP, originally released in 1990 by Trojan Records. The album is available on black vinyl and contains printed inner sleeves.

The last of Trojan's three-record (two-CD) collections of Perry's crucial Black Ark production work of the '70s. And, as was the case with the previous collections (The Upsetter Box and Open the Gate), there's absolutely no good reason not to own this collection, too. If you're thinking that three double-CD sets of Lee Perry starts to sound like overkill, look at it this way - that's like saying you've breathed enough air, and now you don't need any more. As with recordings of Sun Ra, there's always a reason (like amazing music, for a start) to add more Lee Perry to your collection....This is the sound of Black Ark at its most exciting and prolific, and remains a testament to Perry's genius as a producer, mixer, and arranger. A heavy groove indeed.
