Part of the Reggae Greats series from Mango, this is a small but tasty slice of the Lee Perry pie. Certainly not as adventurous as most other collections, but it does include killers like the ganja soaked "Roast Fish And Cornbread", Jah Lion's excellent "Wisdom" and one of my favorites, Perry's "Dreadlocks In Moonlight". Consider this essential listening for a course in Lee Perry 101.
