Lost dubs of the 80s
The story is that in 1983 Mr Perry escaped Kingston and after a few months in the USA, came to London where Rudy (Max Romeo) brother-in-law, Tony (Seven Leaves) and Winston Edwards brought him to Ariwa Peckham, where he found a creative space similar to Black Ark.
He was quite familiar with the Ariwa modified Soundcraft series 2, as it was very similar to his flight cased series 1.
He proceeded to record with a passion, laying vocals, and mixing an assortment of tracks,many have never been released. Engineers on these sessions were Sid Bucknor, Mad Professor, and Lee himself.
These tapes have now resurfaced, baked and cleaned up to provide a historical insight into Reggae’s witch doctor!
