Dub reggae legend Lee "Scratch" Perry delivers a follow-up to his Grammy-nominated collaboration with multi-instrumentalist Steve Marshall and producer John Saxon. Perry continues to create unique, category-defying music. For the uninitiated, Lee "Scratch" Perry is one of the most important figures in the history of reggae music. Not only did he help develop the early reggae sound captured in a number of important recordings, but as an engineer, producer, songwriter, and performer he pioneered a number of innovations, including dub reggae. Here, Lee Perry draws his narrative from his spirituality and today's global events. Very special guests Keith Richards and George Clinton join Marshall, Reuben White, Tim Hill, Erica Iji, Mark Mason, and Sheridan Tandy.
