1973 Lee Perry project with "Young Al Capone" developing 20 year old who would go on to record such timeless Reggae anthems as "Cokane In Brain"

This recording was on the threshold of the "roots" revolution, The Upsetter is busy. Busy producing yet another fine, innovative dance tune displaying intricate arranging and slick lead vocal. With a novelty intro, so often used by Lee Perry.

Flip it over, and "Scratch Perry" retains some 60's influences in his lyrics in some part borrowed from a mix of several classic Jamaican recordings. But it works so well... vocally smooth, musically uplifting.
But you could say that about most all Lee Perry's work.

This listing all all about Condition, condition, condition! As well as the skills of Lee Parry; we mean, how often does one encounter a MINT near 50 year old reggae 45?
