Perry The Trojan

A few years ago when Sanctuary were at the helm you couldn’t move for new Trojan product with three or four re-issue CD’s coming out every month. Since Universal took control of the label new re-issues have slowed down to a trickle and whilst what has come out has been well selected and presented it hasn’t exactly set the world on fire. The same looks to be the case for the next scheduled release, a compilation of Lee Scratch Perry’s productions called Sipple Out Deh – Best Of The Black Art Years: The Jamaican 7”s, 1974 to 1978.

If you were buying Perry CD reissues back in the 90’s there in unlikely to be much here that gets you trembling with excitement but for people who haven’t been into the music for a year and a day this promises to be a real treat and a great introduction into the world of LSP.

Trojan hope that this will be the first in a series of Scratch compilations.
