Rootz Reggae Dub

Lee "Scratch" Perry

MEGAWAVE Records MEGW 0512
Right after a U.S. tour two years ago, dub reggae legend Lee "Scratch" Perry recorded 12 new tracks in Negril to a reggae combination mixed by Spacewave, working with backing musicians Speak Easy. Adding percussion from Larry McDonald and backing harmonies from Detroit-based female trio Dames Brown and The Groovematist, the new album was completed just in time for a double-12” vinyl special edition for this year’s Record Store Day, the CD and digital versions released five months later. This Grammy-winning artist, songwriter, and producer channels more of a roots reggae sound for this project and continues his commentary on spirituality, good and evil, and the human condition.
