    "War Ina Babylon" gets a lot of rotation.



    KPFK's Reggae Central is having a tribute to him right now. Show will be archived in a few days.

    I saw him at Dub Club a few times a few years ago.

  • A colossus of music has left us, damn... I wouldn't know where to start with posting tracks, other than maybe chase the devil which is in your War Ina Babylon video anyway. The man's discography is too deep.

    RIP .

    What a life lived through music though,and the legacy he's left behind is spectacular. 

    So long Scratch.. a true visionary and a Jamaican legend.

    I mean, think about the Earth without his contribution and influence.  Apart from your family and friends, it basically sucks.  Tepid at best.

    Deffo less echoey-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y.

    I think I like your definition of the earth better than the Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy's definition.

  • Yeah I have tried to convey to more casual reggae listeners that so much of what you like about reggae comes from Lee Perry. Without him things are considerably less dread
