Lee Scratch Perry
Lee Scratch Perry - Jamaican E.T (Gold Vinyl)
The original Jamaican extra-terrestrial marked a return to the power of Lee “Scratch” Perry's most spaced-out work.
On Jamaican E.T., Perry created a contemporary and challenging set by applying his psychedelic dub to roots reggae, modern reggae, Hip-hop, and dazed, otherworldly exotica. The riddims are groovy, but Perry's greatest strength has always been his mixology. On this album, instead of his usual dub mixes full of insane rhythmic effects, Perry utilizes the voice as his primary instrument of dub: laid-back toasting, singing, mumbling, and gospel backups come in and out, crisscrossing and swirling, truly setting a new mark.
In 2003 it won the Grammy award for Best Reggae Album.
Jamaican E.T. is available as a limited edition of 750 individually numbered copies on gold coloured vinyl.
