Boomkat Product Review:
**Class 14-track collection documenting Lee Perry's influential times at West Indies Records Limited** "This period at WIRL saw some inspired work from Perry. 'Run For Cover' was another musical blow to a previous employer, Coxonne Dodd and featured the Sensations on backing vocals and Lynn Taitt's guitar picking skills. 'People Funny Boy' was a massive hit for Perry going on to sell over 60,000 copies. Joe Gibbs would be at the end of this musical attack. Perry had felt Joe Gibbs had turned his back on him, after he had provided hits for groups like, The Pioneers amongst others. The song would be one of the first records to feature a New Beat (Reggae) inspired by the sounds coming out of a Pocomania Church, Perry had heard one night.The congregation inside, wailed in a more slower way than the current musical style of the time, Ska! Perry worked up this new style with Clancy Eccles, who would come under attack himself in 'You Crummy'. Their closeness, which as detailed in that song would find them, 'Even shared the same Gal' but 'Now it's plain to see we reached the end'. 'Set Them Free' was an answer record to Prince Buster's 'Judge Dread' (which had featured Perry on it) a plea to the Judges in Jamaica that handed out extremely harsh sentences to the young offenders of the time. The track was cut on the same rhythm as 'Run For Cover' . 'Django Shoots First' inspired by the Spaghetti Western film of the same name, features Sir Lord Comic. One of the early DJ's who used a jive talking style over rhythms. 'Night Doctor' was a hit instrumental that featured the organ talents of Ansel Collins, that really push the tune along. 'Something You Got' was a cover of an USA R& B track by Chris Kenner and 'Wind Up Girl' was cut at the same session. 'Water Pump' was a rude style track that was cut later and originally released in 1974.As was 'People Sokup Boy' a later version of 'People Funny Boy'. 'Labrish' which means idol talk and gossip, was one of the first great talk over tunes that features Lee Perry and producer Bunny 'Striker' Lee talking about the Political situation in Jamaica at the time and their own financial situation and stories of various comrades.The track was originally released in 1973."
