Blackboard Jungle Dub (CD)

Lee "Scratch" Perry & The Upsetters

Lee Scratch Perry & the Upsetters- Blackboard Jungle Dub, a classic album from the Upsetter himself, the incomparable Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, receives the proper remastered release it deserves from the reissue masters at Get On Down. Previous releases of “Blackboard Jungle Dub” were either poor quality or only available in box-sets, but now the album is finally presented in high quality digital audio and packaged in a paste-on mini-LP jacket featuring the original album artwork. Widely considered the first full-length dub LP, “Blackboard Jungle Dub” pairs Perry with another Jamaican legend—engineer King Tubby--and embodies the Upsetter’s loose, instinctive sonic approach, with instrumentals stripped down to the bare elements and then brilliantly reassembled as only he can do. Standouts include “Dreamland Dub,” “Dub From Africa” and “Moving Forward.” Another superb reissue that underscores Get On Down’s commitment to high quality releases.
