Item Description
7 inch singles were instrumental to the development of the Jamaican music
industry, more affordable than full lengths for the consumer, they also allowed
the labels to turnaround what was being recorded into music played from their
booming sound systems as quickly as possible. In that spirit, Get On Down will
be reissuing some of the most crucial reggae and ska sides on 45.
This time out we revisit a single Lee Perry first issued right after his fabled
Black Ark Studio was first up and running. On the A-Side you know you’ve got
something special when a cut kicks off with Lee Perry growling like a lion,
“borrowing” heavily from Al Green’s “Love And Happiness” for “Jungle Lion.”
On the B-Side Perry lets The Upsetters do the roaring with the cut being
remixed into “Freak Out Skank.” First issued in 1973 on Perry’s own Justice
League imprint with a UK issue following almost immediately, miss this and
you’ll miss one of the most crucial developments in the sonic evolution of
Scratch’s 1970s output.
