Lee Scratch Perry, Alex Paterson and Thomas Fehlmann returned in fine style with 2013's More Tales From The Orbservatory. 2012's The Observer In The Starhouse was rightfully acclaimed as a colossal meeting of like minds and souls, sparking with rare magic as Paterson and long-time Orb member Fehlmann provided the perfect backdrops for the Upsetter's inimitable pronouncements, righteous declarations and sweet vocals.
If anything, the follow-up stretches further into the cosmos, the backings more heavily rooted in the basic but infinite principles of rhythm and dub. The new tracks continue the full-blooded immersion in reggae's infinite studio universe which characterized the first set; shards of old songs loom like aural ghosts while rhythms resurface, morphing into something fresh and new.
For decades, all three artists have shared a common quest to push out the sound barriers. Each one also knows that journey is never over, which makes the appearance of this fresh batch of tunes and dubs all the more exciting. The mouth-watering potential of a legendary master working with long-time acolytes who tuned into his unique wavelength long ago continues to blossom and explodes again on More Tales From The Orbservatory.
