Voodooism is simply one of the best Scratch collections available. Perry literally blows the title of this album from his mouth (along with a big cloud of ganja smoke) on the front cover -- appropriate for this excellent collection of smokey singles and their heavy dubs. From start to finish, the music is outstanding. Listing highlights is really superfluous when all of the material is this good, but Earl Sixteen's "Freedom", Zap Pow's psychedelic "River" and the Black Notes' "African Style" are real show-stoppers. One unfortunate mistake needs to be pointed out: "Yagga Yagga" is actually a dub of "Many A Call" by The Unforgettables, which is a shame since the actual song is a killer tune. Highly recommended.
