Earlier in this book, we saw how mutually beneficial Lee Perry’s production skills and The Wailers’ music were to one another. And in the next chapter there is an examination of Perry’s famous Black Ark period: the pinnacle of his (or perhaps anyone’s) production prowess. But besides these bodies of work he also produced himself and other singers on a number of great tracks that should not be missed, especially when they are all readily available on any number of CD collections.
