LEE PERRY

AFRICA’S BLOOD (2021 reissue)

music on vinyl



limited numbered (1000 only) 180g orange lp

Released: 22nd Jan 2021

£22.99


Upon release in 1971, Africa’s Blood was the first record Lee “Scratch” Perry released under his own name, although his band The Upsetters do appear on most of the tracks.

If any album serves as a good peak into what was happening in Jamaican music in the early 70s, Africa’s Blood is the way to go. There’s an undeniable influence from American contemporary R&B, but still Perry’s signature dub and reggae fusion shines through.
