Lee Perry - Roast Fish, Collie Weed & Corn Bread (1978) (Upsetter Records)
Roast Fish, Collie Weed & Corn Bread is the 1978 album by Lee “Scratch” Perry. This album was the first to consist entirely of songs sung all by Perry himself. This was the first Lee Perry album I ever heard, and now it’s my favorite album of his, so far. Back in the day when I knew nothing about reggae, I went into a record store and picked out this record, and a Burning Spear record. I walked up to the clerk and asked him which one I should purchase. He suggested the Lee Perry album, and it’s been a favorite ever since. I love this album so much because it doesn’t sound like a typical reggae record. Lee Perry gets extra experimental on this album by adding abstract noises to his songs (random background noises, drowning horns, a baby crying, a cow mooing, etc), bringing a fresh new perspective to reggae music. You can listen to a song on Roast Fish, Collie Weed & Corn Bread called “Soul Fire” at the top of this post.
