Reissue of very rare UK LP ‘Musical Bones’ which appeared on ‘DiP’ records as a limited edition of 300 white-label-only copies back in 1975 –

Great to see this one back in press again – a real nice slab of rocksteady, funked-up, dub-wise roots reggae music, with legendary trombone player Vin Gordon the star of the show, alongside The Upsetters all stars, with none other than Lee Perry on production duties, Boris Gardiner on bass, Bobby ellis and Dirty Harry on Horns… and maaaany more.
Check the credits below and listen closely for some real musical finesse.

Top a top LP, served in original, perfectly wacky skeleton artwork.

Recorded and mixed by Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry at the Black Ark Studio in Jamaica, in 1975. The audio has been carefully restored from an original vinyl pressing, as the master tapes no longer exist.
