Ultimate Lee "Scratch" Perry anthology on 4LP/4CD!

Deluxe box set features fully illustrated book + two-sided poster!

Arguably the greatest Jamaican record producer of all time, Lee "Scratch" Perry was instrumental in transforming the island's national sound throughout the 1960s and 1970s, with his unique approach to music making pushing the music beyond previously perceived boundaries.

To mark the first anniversary of his passing, the very best of his work is showcased across a number of products, all of which effectively demonstrate why Perry was a widely venerated figure for so long..

The deluxe box set comprises four vinyl LPs and four CD sets featuring his best known and most influential recordings including a previously unreleased mix of Junior Murvin's powerful "Police And Thieves," UK chart-buster "Hurt So Good" by Susan Cadogan and the Upsetters' boss reggae classic "Return Of Django," as well as numerous major Jamaican hits.

Aldo included in the set is a 50-page fully illustrated book, penned by Scratch's official biographer, David Katz and featuring an array photos by celebrated photographer Adrian Boot, and a newly designed two-sided full color 24" x 24" poster.

This collection focuses upon the legendary music-maker's best known productions from the 1960s and '70s, performed by some of the giants of Jamaican music, with extensive notes on the man whose talent and imagination took reggae to new heights of excellence.
