Lee “Scratch” Perry

Arkology

  • Island


A brilliant eccentric, Perry produced the breakthrough mature songs of Bob Marley and The Wailers almost 30 years ago, and he remains a force in reggae today. In the '70s, Jamaica's Black Ark Studio was his secret laboratory where he transformed a parade of musician customers with his rugged rhythms, weird sound effects and hard-driving arrangements. This three-CD collection assembles strong cuts from weak albums even as it surveys all of Perry's wild domain. Celebrated performances like “Police and Thieves” mix with cult favorites like “Dreadlocks in Moonlight” and slippery, stoned-out instrumentals like “Corn Fish Dub.” Amusing, righteous, potent, unique.
