Lee "Scratch" Perry

Live In Brighton

BURNING SOUNDS



cd + dvd

Released: 24th Jan 2020

£7.99


Scintillating live set from our very own Concorde 2 by that most enigmatic and renowned dub producer – Lee “Scratch” Perry.

Without doubt the best known and most charismatic of all the Jamaican record producers Rainford Hugh Perry (nicknamed Lee by his mother) aka Scratch/ The Upsetter is one of reggae’s longest serving veterans and his story is inseparable from that of the development of Jamaican popular music. By 1968 he had formed his own label Upsetter Records and was enjoying hits with songs like The Untouchable’s ‘Tighten Up’. But he became best known for his quirky instrumental numbers whose titles often took inspiration from the spaghetti westerns that were so popular in Kingston’s downtown cinemas at the time.
