More crucial cuts from the legendary Lee "Scratch" Perry for you this Thursday. All week, we've been digging into the man's thick back-catalogue for some sonic highlights from a legendary career. 

For the most part, we've been peeping the talented productions of the man who had a big part in the evolution of reggae music. Perry's skill as a producer led to the development of dub as a form of music itself. In the recordings I have today, he is showcased as either the vocalist or as a producer whose effect can be heard in the dubbed-out reggae instrumentals and in the treatment of the rocording on the whole.

Lee "Scratch" Perry Tracklist:

"Black Panta"

"Soul Fire"

"Stay Dread"

"Jungle Lion"


"Reggae River"
