Notes on the selections:
These six selections are all original discomixes produced by Lee Perry.
The audio was extensively restored from original pressings. Lee Perry's techniques were highly unusual and the tunes often have a raw quality to them but they are in all cases pretty much exactly what you'd hear with a near mint original :-)

It's nice to have a chance to score this one, but...!) Why does it say "Black Art" ( instead of Black Arc ) on the vabels?2) Why is there's nowhere barcode to be seen ?How legal is all this, tell me...
The 'Black Art' logo(s) was used on the labels of various Perry productions from the mid '70s... In terms of legality- it's not ,that's why Discogs bars many Corn Fed & SeeWhyAudio releases ....
i also like how it sounds, vol.1 as well. hopefully more volumes to come...
Any more thoughts on how this sounds? The reissues they did of the Megaton Dub LPs were much poorer than the original Seven Leaves versions
Surely a running time of 22 mins on one side of an LP is sub-optimal; especially for this sort of music. Why wasn't this isued as a 2xLP? That way, there is room to spread the music out, make for a better cut.
Great sounding here, as Volume 1 , Lee perry fans should grab it now if they don't already have these 12" in stock. Thanks to Colin Young and Studio 16
