Perry, Lee ‘Scratch’ – Black Ark Classic Songs- [Ariwa]
Released in 2016 to commemorate Lee’s 80th birthday
Here we see yet another great collaboration with Lee Perry and Mad Professor giving us some classic Perry cuts a dub over. Cuts are re-recorded, re-vamped, and refreshed Lee has some fun with ‘No More Roast Fish’, a play on his classic ‘Roast Fish and Cornbread’. Doctor Shit‘ sees Lee re-visit an old Ska classic ‘Doctor Dick!’
Many believe his Black Ark years were Lee’s peak period of creativity, and this album is a great representation with a fresh 21st-century facelift making it all brand new again.
Amazing career, amazing life until the very end, RIP Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, 1936- 2021.
