|SMOKIN' - LEE PERRY
CD: VP VPRL1358
Produced by Melvin "Munchie" Jackson
Smokin' is one of the albums that Scratch cut in a hurry during the confusing years following the demise of the Black Ark (it wasn't released until 1994). Produced by the controversial Munchie Jackson, it dates from the time Scratch spent in New York, hanging out with a variety of musicians and producers. At best, Smokin' can be described as "not bad": an uneven effort that has Scratch rapping ad infinitum about a variety of confusing subjects.
