5.0 out of 5 stars Lee Perry the Dub Master, 8 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Roaring Lion (Audio CD)
Now this is the sort of music that made the Upsetter rightly famous. Smokin dub music at it's finest from Scratch at his creative peak circa 1976 -77. Most of the tracks on this are dub plate mixes of popular riddims at that time, dubbed up and phased echoings swirl around as disembodied vocals float in and out of the mix. The amps and the audience should be smoking when this is playing, the bass bins heaving and shuddering with thunderous bass lines, the tweeters shrieking and wailing as the tortured horns try to escape the echo chamber only to be turned inside out and fed back in.. Truly the work of genius. If you like your dub dirty then this is for you. Probably the best collection of mostly previously unreleased Upsetter music that I've bought for many a year. I strongly recommend this CD to all lovers of real dub music. If you miss it you'll be sorry! This disc will be changing hands for ridiculous amounts of money in a few years time, having gained legendary status amongst those of us who recognise Lee Scratch Perry as the Boss Dub Master.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blinding!, 5 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Roaring Lion [VINYL] (Vinyl)
This is a top-notch selection of dub-plates and versions from Perry's genius period in his Black Ark. Everything is full of killer hooks, great dub echoes, reverbs, and other sonic delights.

If you are mad for LSP then buy this; it's a treat that will keep on giving.

p.s. This is a review of the vinyl, which is nicely pressed and sounds good, a couple of rare tracks aside (prob from vinyl copies rather than the masters). I haven't heard the CD, but the limitations of the format mean that it can't come close to the vinyl version. Please buy Lee on vinyl if you can; the CD can only sound dull and thin comparison.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good versions but nothing really new, 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Roaring Lion (MP3 Download)
This album consists of different versions of tracks that have appeared on many other albums. Having said that most of the versions on this album are good and if you are a Lee Perry fan it is worth having.
