between 1973-78 in kingston, jamaica, lee perry recorded some of the most fascinating, out there music ever created at his ramshackle, back yard studio, the black ark. over the past week i've sifted through hundreds of tunes, mixes and remixes all created by perry in this, one of the most fertile places and times in musical history. this is not a. comprehensive train spotters guide to the black ark, it's just some of my favourite vocals, version and dubs. made by bernie connor and simon kember.

Lee Perry - Croaking Lizard A Peelenium choice for 1976. Lee "Scratch" Perry (born Rainford Hugh Perry, 20 March 1936, Kendal, Jamaica) is a musician and producer who has been influential in the development and acceptance of reggae and dub music in Jamaica and overseas. He employs numerous pseudonyms, including Pipecock Jackxon and The Upsetter. Virtually everything Perry recorded in The Black Ark was done using basic recording equipment; through sonic sleight-of-hand, Perry made it sound unique. Perry remained behind the mixing desk for many years, producing songs and albums that stand out as a high point in reggae history. 22 May 1990: White Belly Rat (v/a album - The Upsetters With Lee Perry And Friends - Build The Ark) Trojan PERRY 3. 25 June 1990: I'm A Dread Locks (v/a album - Public Jestering) Attack ATLP 108.

PERRY 3 The Upsetters With Lee Perry And Friends* The Upsetters With Lee Perry And Friends* - Build The Ark ‎(3xLP, Comp + Box, Ltd) Trojan Records PERRY 3 UK 1990

This is one of the best Black Ark compilations ever, although not every song here is a winner. But you can find here incredible tracks like Junior Murvins Cross Over, which shadowy production is many steps ahead of its time and anticipates Rhythm & Sound dub techno revelation. There is a also great sound sphere in Leo Grahams My Little Sandra. Rest of the tracks represents typical Black Ark reggae sound, sometimes with very obscure vocals.
