Happy Birthday Lee Perry

Today is the birthday of the legendary Lee 'Scratch' Perry. To commemorate the occasion, Hearwax has posted an overview of Perry's career together with an A to Z selection of tunes he performed or produced over the years (from "Ashes and Dust" to "Zion"). It's a great set of songs - grab them today and celebrate reggae's mad genius.
The legend that is Lee Perry turns 70 years of age on Monday, and I think that anyone who is a lover of reggae music should hold up their glass (or spliff) and toast the man for his incredible contribution to the genre over the decades.
