Lee "Scratch" Perry Selects His Favorites
Published February 23, 2007

The Upsetter Selection: A Lee Perry Jukebox will be released on Trojan/Sanctuary Records March 20, 2007.

Lee “Scratch” Perry’s impact on the sound of Jamaican music can never be understated. During a career spanning over 40 years he has taken Reggae to new, often strange heights, with his singularly unique approach to music making. He is a producer, mixologist and songwriter who helped shape and create the sound of dub, as well as having a hand in developing reggae music to be the powerful force in the pop music world that it is today. Many years of producing various recordings have resulted in Perry being a part of some of the most influential tracks in the history of reggae music. Today, 25 years after the destruction of his famed Black Ark studio in Kingston, this enigmatic genius is one of the best known and most highly regarded musicians on the international Reggae scene. His music is continually attracting new fans all over the world.

For this one of a kind collection, Lee Perry has personally selected 45 of his own works that hold a special place in his heart and mind. Opening with a handful of his early Ska and Rocksteady recordings, this compilation carries us on a musical journey that takes in his earliest tracks as an independent producer before moving on to a slew of mind-bending glorious Black Ark cuts, finally closing with a number of more recent outings, including ‘Jamaican E.T.’ from his Grammy winning album of the same title.

This set is the latest in Trojan’s artist choice jukebox series which includes collections from Jonny Greenwood, DJ Spooky and Don Letts.
