Scratch Patch

Because they're long and they're songs and its Monday here are a couple of tracks from Lee "Scratch" Perry's album "On The Wire" (which is not to be confused with "Scratch On The Wire", a compilation of his production work from 1979).This album was recorded in 1988 but not released until 2000. It was well worth the wait though as it is magnificent from start to finish.  

While both the selected songs clock in at over seven minutes they are actually among the shorter tracks on the album. There are three more between eight to nine minutes long and one that runs all the way up to eleven, as all good things should do.

"Yes My Friends" - Lee "Scratch" Perry

"Burn Funky" - Lee "Scratch" Perry

Mr Perry isn't the only thing you'll find on a wire if you go looking.
