Album Notes and Credits
Liner Note Authors: Lee "Scratch" Perry; David Katz.
Assembled by the master producer himself, this two-disc best-of features some of the most significant recordings of Lee Perry's four-decade-and-counting career. It includes the mid-1960s "People Funny Boy"--his acerbic kiss-off to his onetime patron, the producer Joe Gibbs--and his international hits such as the Upsetters' "Return of Django" and Susan Cadogan's "Hurts So Good," as well as early versions of Bob Marley and the Wailers' "Soul Rebel," "Small Axe," and "Kaya." Later recordings, such as "I Am a Madman" and "Jamaican E.T.," show that the prolific, eccentric genius hasn't lost his touch despite his self-imposed Swiss exile from his native Jamaica.
