Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry: Still ahead of the pack at 77

He doesn’t need much of an introduction but Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry is a pioneer of the reggae world and one of the most influential artist/producers to ever have stepped into a recording studio. Building an experimental studio in his back yard, in Jamaica, “Scratch” was the producer on early recordings for such seminal musicians as Bob Marley & the Wailers, Junior Byles, The Heptones, and Max Romeo. His estoeric, often bewildering approach to music resulted in some of the most dynamic, experimental and downright special music to have ever come out of Jamaica.
