Reggae Icon Lee Scratch Perry Releases Revelation

Reggae Icon Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry has a new album titled Revelation. It was recorded at Perry’s mountain-top studio in Switzerland and various studio locations in England, Florida and New York City and produced by long-time collaborator Steve Marshall. Perry provided the powerful lyrical content on the album and also contributed his unmistakable sound including synthesizer programming.

Revelation presents the signature surrealistic and eccentric rhythmic genius of The Mighty Upsetter, featuring 13 of his best new songs in years with Marshall, Duncan & Green, Tim Hill, Keith Richards, George Clinton, Dr Sleepy, Alec Hay, elodieO, Abi Browning, and David Stewart Jones. Highlights include rock n’ roll legend Keith Richards on “Books of Moses” and a Lee “Scratch” Perry duet with George Clinton on “Scary Politicians”.

For over 40 years, Grammy Award winning reggae Icon Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry’s name has become synonymous with experimentation and innovation both as a legendary producer and an influential performer. An influential figure, Lee “Scratch” Perry shaped the dub sound and made reggae music a powerful part of pop culture.

  1. HIS BOOK IS A MUST!!! It not only features Lee Scratch Perry but Augustus Pablo and Junior Delgado.

    A book of photographs by Pogus Caesar celebrating Britain’s iconic black musicians is to be published next month.

    The book features evocative, nostalgic and largely unpublished images of musical legends like Stevie Wonder, Grace Jones and Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry.

    “These images record a unique period in what would come to be called black British life,” remarks author and historian Paul Gilroy.

    “Pogus Caesar’s emphatically analog art is rough and full of insight. He conveys the transition between generations, mentalities and economies.”

    Legendary reggae artists figures prominently, and appropriately, in the Caesar image canon – Burning Spear, The Wailers, Augustus Pablo, Rita Marley, Mighty Diamonds, Black Uhuru, Sly Dunbar, Steel Pulse etc. The photographer cites reggae itself is a significant influence, reflecting his own St Kitts background in the Eastern Caribbean.

    The launch of Muzika Kinda Sweet follows an exhibition of the work at the Oom Gallery in Birmingham earlier this year.

  2. Respect for connecting me with Caesar’s book! Now how great are Mighty Diamonds and the Legendary “Scratch” Perry.
