For the new year, your friends at Get On Down bring you a beautiful package of roots reggae weirdness from the almighty Upsetter: Lee “Scratch” Perry.
This 12” single features the song “Disco Devil,” recorded by the legendary Jamaican mad genius with the group The Full Experience, as a version of Max Romeo’s “Chase the Devil.” But don’t jump to conclusions based on the song title – musically this is as far as you can get from
Saturday Night Fever.
Thick, reverb-drenched dub/roots reggae laced with Perry’s dusted vocals and brilliant work behind the boards are on the menu throughout. This cut is undeniably underrated in Perry’s catalog and fans will eat this up, since it has always been hard to find on 7” and 12” for many years now.
