Dub reggae legend Lee "Scratch" Perry delivers a second follow-up to his Grammy-nominated collaboration with multi-instrumentalist Steve Marshall AKA producer John Saxon. Perry created unique, category-defying music. For the uninitiated, Lee "Scratch" Perry was 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. With this release, Lee Perry again drew his narrative from his spirituality and the day's global events. Very special guests Keith Richards and George Clinton again join Marshall, with Harold Duncan, Aguybert Green, Tim Hill, Dr Sleepy, Alec Hay, elodieO, Abi Browning, and David Stewart Jones also featured.
