For the uninitiated, Lee "Scratch" Perry is one of the most important figures in the history of reggae music. Not only did he help develop the early reggae sound captured in a number of important recordings, but as an engineer, producer, songwriter, and performer he pioneered a number of innovations, including dub reggae and the "scratch" turntable effect used by DJ's today.
Perry shows himself to be a true doctor of the soul, whose music is meant to heal and give hope to the spiritually lost.... And by some force, it seems as though Perry is in a constant state of inspiration... It seems clear that to Perry music and poetry is an expression as well as an affirmation of the divine. —Adrian Pocobelli, The Population.com
