Lee "Scratch" Perry. The Black Album. Since retrospective compilations are too numerous to mention, the following discography focuses almost entirely on original albums crediting Perry or his Upsetters band, explored in roughly chronological order; it only mentions in passing the single-artist albums Perry produced with singers, vocal groups and deejays, many of which are worth seeking out on their own.
Thus, a strange mix of rough and smooth, conscious and cheesy, Perry and non-Perry, but all good. The audio spectrum on this album Islands - Cazadores - Hyperion Days fully differentiated and spatial placement an important component, something it would take years for Perry to achieve at Lee Scratch Perry* / Susan Cadogan - Cloak & Dagger / Do It Baby Black Ark.
Just as the Black Ark became operational, Perry found his regular overseas outlets drying up, so he began brokering new overseas distribution deals with a number of independent labels, the most significant of which was with DIP, a reggae concern founded by Jamaican immigrant Dennis Harris in southeast London.
Revolution Dub saw Perry venturing further into the dub stratosphere, this time incorporating snippets of television sitcom dialogue on much of the disc. There was also drastic cross-channel stereo panning, and fragmented vocal snippets that were frozen in time, leaping out at the listener. It all makes Revolution Dub another appealing dub oddity of the period, lying somewhere between the extremities of dub and the ordinary vocal.
The installation of a Soundcraft mixing desk allowed for greater spatial capabilities, and when Perry found a demonstration model of a Mutron Super Phasing effects unit, that and a Roland Space Echo put his productions in a whole different league. The final piece in the puzzle was the deal he brokered with Chris Blackwell that would see his output released through Island Records in the UK and USA, bringing his creations to a whole new sphere. A veritable tour-de-force of Upsetter wizardry, about half of the cuts are raw dubs presented in their purest form, the remainder being near-standard vocals or re-voiced dub tracks with serious jazz leanings.
Musically, it bears Lee Scratch Perry* / Susan Cadogan - Cloak & Dagger / Do It Baby typical late Black Ark sound, bolstered by harmonies from the female Full Experience trio. He covered the walls with cryptic graffiti, and filled his days with enacting obscure rituals, as a dramatic new persona, Pipecock Jackxon, took over.
By the end ofas various pressures came to a head, Lee Perry shut the doors of the Black Ark, ejecting everyone from the premises, and trashing much of the equipment. He entered a new phase, based on covering the walls and every other available surface with cryptic graffiti, and filled his days with enacting obscure rituals, as a dramatic new persona, Pipecock Lee Scratch Perry* / Susan Cadogan - Cloak & Dagger / Do It Babytook over. In lateAmerican Green River - Creedence Clearwater Revival - 40th Anniversary Edition Sampler based in Holland made contact with Perry to license back catalogue material for their Black Star Liner label.
These players worked on further sessions at the decaying Ark in earlybut progress was slow. With no studio of his own in Jamaica, Perry became a nomad. After the Black Ark finally perished in a mysterious fire inPerry was cast adrift. Perry initiated an album with Prof at the time, though it would not surface for several years. It was another strong album if not as memorable as Time Boomthe largely digital rhythms leaning closer to the contemporary Jamaican dancehall sound, but given a greater depth through the creative constructions of the Wackies crew.
It was an album Perry voiced with Mad Professor five years earlier. Though there were several gratuitous adaptations of Marley songs, the most effective numbers were originals cut over eerie Ariwa rhythms, on which Perry unleashed the anguish of his tortured soul.
