Heartbeat Records to Release Lee "Scratch" Perry's Chicken Scratch Deluxe Edition on January 29
Published November 2, 2007

Heartbeat Records have announced the January 29 release of Lee “Scratch” Perry’s Chicken Scratch Deluxe Edition CD. This album is the latest in an extensive series of Studio One releases launched in early 2006 to critical acclaim. Heartbeat Records will continue the series next year, with upcoming releases by the late Skatalites trombonist Don Drummond, Johnny Osbourne, and others.

Lee “Scratch” Perry is an important musical figure and a unique entity whose works have forever changed the way we think about recorded sound, specifically dub music and it’s effect on the dance remix. Perry is rightly hailed as a true originator through the sonic innovations he pioneered at his legendary Black Ark studio during the late 1970s. However, few have heard the incredible first set of recordings he made in the ska years at Studio One during the early to mid 1960s. Heartbeat presents the Chicken Scratch Deluxe Edition with a number of bonus tracks from the same era and, for the first time on CD, the original single mixes of 13 of these ska scorchers. The Cd Includes liner notes written by David Katz, author of People Funny Boy: The Genius of Lee “Scratch” Perry and Solid Foundation: An Oral History of Reggae.
