Sound System Scratch

Pressure Sounds label are set to release a new album of Lee 'Scratch' Perry/Upsetter tracks entitled Sound System Scratch. The compilation is made up of remixes of tracks originally recorded at Perry's legendary Black Ark Studios in Kingston, Jamaica during the 1970s which have only ever been heard at sound system dances. Sound System Scratch will be available as CD or double vinyl (which comes with a 7" single, Dub Plate Pressure) directly from Pressure Sounds from 31 July.
