A collection of some of Perry's finest 12" reggae disco-mixes.

During the latter half of the seventies when disco ruled the dance floors labels such as SalSoul, Philly, Casablanca and T.K Disco began bringing out extended versions of their latest releases to keep the dance floor faithful in the groove longer.

Reggae never one to be out done by changing fades also hopped on this bandwagon with labels and producers releasing their own disco / extended-mixed versions of tracks, with vocal cuts spliced with DJ or Dub cuts to create long-playing versions of their own latest singles.

Lee Perry - Disco DevilProbably one of the greatest exponents of the disco-mix format was Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry who from the controls of the legendary Black Ark created some of the most wonderful 12” singles ever to see issue.

The best of these works from the prolific producer, recorded between 1976 and1980, have now been collected together here on “Lee 'Scratch' Perry And Friends - Disco Devil - The Jamaican Discomixes” released on Trojan Records via Universal / Sanctuary Music. Featuring artists including Max Romeo, Junior Delgado, Junior Murvin, Leroy Sibbles, The Congos and himself, amongst others, this collection is aimed not just at Perry enthusiasts, but also those wishing to discover the very best in the Roots Reggae Disco-Mix sounds.
