Extremely hot compilation ... everything you looking for, quality is a must!

This compilation is by far one of the most valuable of Lee Perrys 12" inch mixes from the late 70ies. The quality is absolutly perfect, compared to many cheap 12" Vinyl single reissues. Who would prefer a terrible distorted and less orignial sounding vinyl, over a very close to the oringinal, proper produced sounding CD, where the integrity of the artist is preserved. If you want to save many years collecting and probably around 3000-6000 Bucks for originals, or lose money on rather dissapointing reissues ... than this is it and simply ridiculous good!

Get lost in this compilation for a few hours/days/weeks. Some rough around the edges extended dub versions of the highest order. Too good.
