Comment:

I was introduced to dub in 1982, at the te_nder age of 12. My best frie_nd at the time had an amazing cool older sister who had absolutely flawless taste in music (as well as other c_harms that are better not discussed here...) and she was immersing herself in all dem tings dat make de dub. King Tubby, Prince Jammy, etc., etc. And while I was completely sold on the sound, one artist in particular absolutely fascinated me: Lee Scratch Perry. He's incredibly talented, prolific, and unquestionably out of his mind. Lege_nds of his various oddities range from the unbelievable (some say he used to get high by drinking tape cleaner fluid...) to the certifiable (he burned down his Black Ark studio because he had become convinced that it had become possessed by the devil...). Regardless, I loved his music and his techniques, which he proffered to a wide array of artists. Anyway, I've been meaning to do a mix of his stuff (including stuff he produced), so I cobbled this together. 22 tracks, 77+ minutes of The Computer Master... Dub Organizer Supreme... The Original Upsetter.. Lee... Scratch... Perry.

Yeah. I've got mixed feelings about Bob. Like his stuff, but always preferred Pete Tosh and other more "grimy" reggae.
