Lee "Scratch" Perry 's eccentric persona often obscures the incredibly innovative approaches he brought to Jamaican music, and his kitchen-sink recording methods likewise cloak the very real vision behind his one-of-a-kind creations. Perry is quite simply reggae's one true auteur, and no matter who is singing or playing at a Perry session, the finished result is all Scratch. Perry 's legendary Black Ark Studio was up and running by this time -- Cè Tutto Un Mondo - Nek - In Due had become Enter The Dragon - Lee Perry - Dubstrumentals or less operational at the close of -- and he was just beginning an amazing run of productions.
Kung Fu Meets the Dragon benefits mightily from the presence of Augustus Pablo on melodica, which gives it all a vaguely Far Sonic Glory - Various The X-Mas Metalizer - X-MasMetalizer vibe, and the sequence flows like nothing so much as the soundtrack to some long-lost Jamaican spaghetti western.
Sound unlikely? Welcome to Scratch country. Return of the Wax was originally released as a limited-edition, white-label LP, and it is less dub proper than it is a deep, dense drum'n'bass set.
Musical Bones is actually a sequence from Jamaican trombonist Vin Gordon with Perry producingfeaturing Gordon and friends fleshing out classic reggae rhythms with jazz structures and phrasing. Among the standout tracks on this double-disc reissue are the almost polka-sounding "Scorching Iron" from Kung Fu, the odd musical wisdom of "One Armed Boxer" from Wax and the weird, spooky "Licky Licky," complete with drunken-sounding trombone, from Bones.
