Lee Perry Dubs The Wailers Vol-I

Lee Perry & The Wailers, 2 of the premier reggae artists/bands ever to leave JA, in the late 1960’s & early 70’s ska was in decline & a new sound was king, Lee Perry had left Joe Gibb’s Amalgamated label in a blaze of fury & then had his Upsetters ‘stolen’ by Bob Marley, Marley needed a new direction for his Wailers & Scratch was the answer. Recorded mostly at Randys studio, Scratches influence is marked across every one of these tunes.

Junior Byles Mixup

Junior Byles Mixup, 28 deadly cuts covering mostly the 1970-1976 period when Kerrie Byles Jr’s voice was at its sweetest, produced by some of the biggest names in reggae (Joe Gibbs & Errol T, Leroy Hollet & Dudley Swaby aswell as Lee Perry to name a few). Turn the bass up & relax with a fattie for the next 77 minutes.
