Lee 'Scratch' Perry - Disco Devil Vol. 1 (Studio 16 LP)
This is the first volume in a series from Winston Edwards 'Studio 16' - collecting the, previously scattered across various labels such as Upsetters, Orchid or Seven Leaves, discomixes of crucial cuts from around 1977-79. Original hits such as Junior Murvin's 'Roots Train', Lord Creator's 'Such Is Life', Winston Watson & Dillinger's 'Dispensation', and of course Lee Perry's very-own 'Lion A De Winner' and 'Disco Devil' are featured on this disc in their full glory:
vocal into dub - most of each stretching near the 10 minute mark.
Undeniably full of life-force, these tracks are raw classics and it's great to have the extended mixes in one place.
