Lee Perry Holiness Righteousness on Limited Edition LP
Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, aka the Upsetter, is responsible for some of the most startling and adventurous contributions to the direction and development of reggae music as a producer, arranger and writer. For decades Perry was the driving force behind the most important movements in the genre. His role in shaping the history of Jamaican music in particular and recorded music in general is immensely vast.
Secret Records' limited edition vinyl release Holiness Righteousness offers up ten vintage tracks culled from Lee 'Scratch' Perry's radical 2003 album Alien Starman. In an interesting twist, Perry doesn't handle all production duties here either; Roger Lomas is on hand as well, and the resulting sound calls to mind mid-season On-U as it ambles blissfully along with a female vocal back up team who sound like Akabu.
