The first CDs of the "Reggae Greats" series appeared in These were reissued in with the same mastering as part of the "Reggae Refreshers" campaign. In they were remastered and re-released by Spectrum as the "Island Reggae Greats" series. This review is for the Lee Perry CD (Mango/Island ) from the first series /5(9). A move back to Jamaica - connected him up with Lee Perry. Old Scratch was making a name for himself again and was involved in a three way studio battle with Channel One and Joe Gibbs - looking for a new sound. Keith's 'Groovy Situation' was one a great example of this. Although it seems it never gained a release in Jamaica. Lee "Scratch" Perry's Black Ark Studio was an epicenter of Rastafarian culture and a massively productive hub of some of the most revered '70s reggae recordings ever put to tape. Perry's infamously eccentric leanings would eventually cross the line into mental instability, and while it's unclear if Perry himself burned the studio to the ground in the late '70s, or an electrical malfunction was. Reggae Greats: Lee "Scratch" Perry is a Island Records compilation album featuring the work of Lee "Scratch" Perry. It concentrates mainly on his work as a producer/composer rather than a singer. Perry only sings on three of the songs. All of the tracks are from the period between 19and were recorded at Perry's Black Ark studio. From the more obscure depths of the Perry catalog come the very stern Jah Lion (aka Jah Lloyd) with "Wisdom" and the vaguely creepy "Groovy Situation" by Keith Rowe. These recordings represent some of Perry's finest work as a producer and bandleader, and exemplify the creative peak of his Black Ark period.
