Lee Scratch Perry Arkology REEL 3

If you like original dub not that BS dubstep then if you see Arkology box set for sale just buy it. The listening experience is full of wonderful textures. I like to let it play on a day I am hanging at the house working on projects. 

Here is sample.

Susan Cadogan - Hurt So Good

This little gem was produced by Lee Scratch Perry. Susan's voice is one of my faves. I need to pick up this album at some point.

Susan Cadogan - Hurt So Good 1975

It is hard to find footage of Susan Cadogan.  The camera man is more interested in filming bad angles and hardly focuses on her. I'd like to kick the camera guys square in the nuts. Sorry I'll calm down... Anyway classic song produced by Lee Scratch Perry. He lists it among his favorite songs.

The Upsetter Lee Scratch Perry

Lee Scratch Perry is one of the best producers of our age. Sound engineers are still trying to reverse engineer his techniques. He is in his 80's and still producing and releasing his own records. The funny thing about Perry is when the mic or cameras are on he is the very eccentric crazy Upsetter but as soon as that stuff goes away he is as normal as apple pie.
I just found this cool documentary called The Upsetter which is narrated by Benicio Del Toro. This should be superb and I've already ordered my copy.

In 1980 Paul McCartney was arrested in Japan for bringing 8ozs of pot. Lee Scratch Perry upon hearing about this injustice wrote a letter to the Japanese Minister Of Justice. I'd like to think it helped secure his early release from jail.
Now Lee Scratch Perry was producing the best artist in Jamaica until the arrival of Chris Blackwell. This did not sit well with Perry so he wrote this over the top song called Judgement In A Babylon. This is one of my favorites. I need to find this 45... ROFLMAO...
" He killed Bob Marley and take away his royalty. -He killed Bob Marley
and anhilize the Wailers. -Chris Blackwell is a vampire, who's sucking the
blood of the sufferah, ah. Tom Hayes is a vampire, who's sucking the
blood of the sufferah. -Chris Blackwell killed Bob Marley and take away
his royalty because Bob Marley was speaking the truth. -So he set him up
to get rid of him, because he's working for the mafias. -I saw Chris Blackwell
in Nassau, drinking the blood of a chicken in a rum glass and have the heart to
offer Iman a drink " Lee Scratch Perry

" Chris Blackwell come to Jamaica and want to sign up all the artist, because
he wants to control Jamaican music, then he can take the black man music
and promote his white artists, but Jahovia Jah Rastafari said it won't work
he get a jerk " Lee Scratch Perry

On a lighter note here is the compilation of Lee Scratch Perry Guinness adverts...

Lee Scratch Perry and Guiness

I am a Guinness fan from way back as well as Lee Scratch Perry. Apparently Lee Scratch Perry did a couple commercials for Guinness. This is a compilation of those commercials and crazy outtakes. How I would have loved to have been on this team.

I am here with my brain in my suitcase.

For those not familiar with Lee Scratch Perry. He was the first to scratch on a record. He was also the first to produce Bob Marley among many others. When Chris Blackwell went to Jamaica and signed Marley along with several others Perry was obviously not happy. After Marley died Perry wrote a song called Judgement Ina Babylon calling Chris Blackwell a vampire and perhaps he was correct.

Chris Blackwell is a vampire.

Into his 70's ;) Repentance is an amazing cd. Not my favorite song off the cd but the only one with a video. Perry seems to be having fun.
