Sound System Scratch

CD (Item 523868) Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.70 18

Dub rarities from Lee Perry at Black Ark studio – rumbling riddims and hazy atmosphere that is as hypnotic and incredible as ever – a wealth of material rarely heard outside of sound system dances collected by the unbeatable Pressure Sounds label! A steady, if often seedy rhythm holds this magical dub plate mixes together – with more tripped out touches on the outer edges – be it a trippy use of echo, clattering bits of percussion or harder to explain vibes. Amazing stuff featuring Lee & The Upsetters with Augustus Pablo, Keith Rowe, Winston Right, Clive Hylton, Junior Murvin and others. Includes "Dub Plate Pressure" by Lee Perry, "Lama Lava Mix One" by Agustus Pablo & The Upsetters, "Groove Dubber", "Groove Rider", "Jucky Skank", "Zeal Of The Lord", "Dub Of The Lord" and more by The Upsetters, "Bushdub Corntrash" by Winston Wright & The Upsetters, "Roots Train Number Two" by Junior Murvin & The Upsetters, "Living Dub" by Keith Rowe & The Upsetters and more. 20 tracks in all.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Pressure Sounds (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy
