Linval Thompson – Look How Me Sexy
Greensleeves 1982

Thompson was raised in Kingston, Jamaica, but spent time
with his mother in Queens, New York, and his recording ca-
reer began around the age of 20 with the self-released “No
Other Woman,” recorded in Brooklyn, New York. Returning to
Jamaica in the mid 1970s he recorded with Phil Pratt, only
to return to New York to study engineering. Returning again
to Jamaica, he worked with Lee “Scratch” Perry at his Black
Ark studio, recording “Kung Fu Man”, and recorded with Bunny
Lee, which resulted in his debut album, Don’t Cut Off Your
Dreadlocks, in 1976.

Lee Perry Theme Week, day 7
Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry & Associates
Chicken Scratch Again

Ending this Lee Perry theme week with a freshly made compilation.
It opens with his at Studio One recorded ‘Chicken Scratch’ of which
he got his nick name Scratch. Just a bunch of personal favorites, not
at all covering his immense discography. A whole week, although I
posted several albums on one day, can’t cover the complete works
of this man who truly changed Jamaica’s musical history. A wizard,
an inspiration for many artists in the past, present and future.

We eindigen deze Lee Perry thema week met een voor de gelegen-
heid gemaakte compilatie. Hij opent met zijn bij Studio One gemaakte
‘Chicken Scratch’ waaraan hij zijn naam Scratch ontleende. Slechts een
zwik persoonlijke favorieten die absoluut zijn immense discografie niet
dekken. Een hele week, ofschoon ik soms meerdere albums per dag heb
gepost, kan onmogelijk een degelijke representatie worden genoemd van
het werk van deze man die de Jamaicaanse muziek geschiedenis voor altijd
veranderde. Een tovenaar, een inspiratie bron voor vele artiesten in het
verleden, heden en toekomst.

Lee Perry the Upsetter presents …
Roast Fish, Collie Weed & Corn Bread
(straight from the black ark studio)
Lion of Judah 1978

Hoeveel prachtige platen Lee Perry ook gemaakt heeft, Roast Fish, Colly
Weed & Corn Bread blijft voor mij de allermooiste. Samen met de twee
Super Ape’s draai ik hem nog altijd met enorm veel plezier. De subtiele
geluidjes, belletjes, loeiende koeien, huilende baby’s,
dit zijn platen die nooit gaan vervelen.

No matter how many wonderful records Lee Perry made, Roast Fish, Colly
Weed & Corn Bread remains the very best for me. Together with the two
Super Ape’s I still play it with lots of pleasure. The subtle little sounds, bells,
mooing cows, crying babies, these are records
that will never bore ..

01 – Soul fire
02 – Throw some water in
03 – Evil tongues

Junior Murvin – Police and Thieves
Island Records 1977

I remember very well how deeply I was impressed hearing Police
and Thieves for the first time as a youngster. In those days I had
no idea that Lee Perry was the sourcerer and wizard behind it.
This is another timeless record produced by the great Lee Scratch
Perry. A must have for every self respecting reggae collector ..

Ik weet nog goed hoe diep ik onder de indruk was toen als jon-
geling Police and Thieves voor de eerste keer hoorde. Ik had toen
nog geen flauw benul dat tovenaar erachter Lee Perry was. Dit
is nog zo’n tijdloze plaat die niet mag ontbreken in de collectie
van elke zichzelf respecterende reggae vezamelaar ..

01 – Roots train

Jah Lion – Colombia Colly
Island Records 1976

Lee Perry started out at Sir Clement ‘Coxsone’ Dodd’s Studio One.
“As a free-spirited musical force however, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry had
too much creativity to be constrained as an underling of another
producer; his unlimited artistic vision and individual way of being,
which incorporates an unpredictable and often quarrelsome
temperament, meant he simply had to be his own boss.”
(Trojan’s ‘The Upsetter’, liner notes) In 1973 he built his own ‘Black
Ark studio’ in the garden of his house. From that moment history
was written. Next to recording under his own name, Lee Perry
was a gifted producer and worked with the greatest of artists.
Today we find some of the most famous albums from that
period starting with Jah Lion’s Colombia Colly, listen ..

gerenommeerde artiesten met veel elan en eigen identiteit.
