In the Studio with Scratch

Nice little video from inside a session in Lee Scratch Perry's studio back in the day. Would have liked to see some more closeups of how he mic's the instruments, particularly the drums.

"By other peoples standards the instruments may sounds distorted, the balance way off. But it's just these rough edges that give Reggae the kind of raw sound that they can never copy abroad."

But oh how we try.

Any of you have any links to good articles describing technical details about the kinds of mic's, techniques of mic'ing, etc. that scratch used? If you do, I'd really appreciate a reply.

YES! That's damn nice, from the "Roots Rock Reggae" documentary! We used that footage as background visuals during gigs! The Phaser work is crazy! Don't know any tech details...

We have other great footage from Jammy, doing dubs of Jimmy Clarke's "None Shall Escape The Judgement" and all... Will try to send it to you. Completely smoked out stuff. Superfunny.
