- Music On Vinyl
180 GRAM AUDIOPHILE VINYL
LIMITED EDITION OF 1000 INDIVIDUALLY NUMBERED COPIES ON ORANGE COLOURED VINYL
Upon release in 1971, Africa’s Blood was the first record Lee “Scratch” Perry released under his own name, although his band The Upsetters do appear on most of the tracks.
If any album
serves as a good peak into what was happening in Jamaican
music in the early 70s, Africa’s Blood is the way to go. There’s an
undeniable influence from American contemporary R&B, but still
Perry’s signature dub and reggae fusion shines through. A limited
edition of just 1000 individually numbered copies of this reissue
will be pressed on orange coloured vinyl, which makes the record
look as vibrant as it sounds.
