A Bit Boring,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: People Funny Boy: The Genius of Lee 'Scratch' Perry (Revised Edition) (Paperback)
As a reference book about Stratch's work this is great and would be 5/5,but as a read about the man its abit of a bore. Its downfall is you don't get to much in depth knowledge about the man. I wanted stories from the man's mouth and his friends and proffesional colleagues. Instead you get reference after reference of studio recordings and record releases. The books to cold to read and doesn't grab you. The author also wrote one about Jimmy Cliff,which I found a hard read. After one chapter I usually can tell if I am going to like a book.
If you want to know about Lee Perry,this ain't it.
