Track of the Day Lee Perry "Blackman Time" [Jun. 12th, 2008|01:51 pm]
Okrzyki, przyjaciel!

It's not exactly breaking news that Lee Perry is a musical genius, but this track was hitting me hard today.

This is a sort of answer to James Brown's "Say It Loud I'm Black And Proud," but besides the afrocentrism, the arrangement is so completely brilliant. The instrumental break (from 1:35 to 2:00) is a perfect lesson in sparse funk. And that Black Ark hiss is what Deep Chord has made a career on for years.
