Mr. Perry I presume kicks off with the over looked 12’ version of George Faiths ‘Don’t be afraid’. Left off the classic ‘Super 8’ LP that George Faith recorded at the Black Ark. It’s slightly rougher around the edges than most of the material on that album. A nice opener to an eclectic set. Perry aficionados will be interested in the original vocal that Joy White cut before Scratch used Susan Cadogen to re-voice the song and also her duet with Bunny Rugs that never made it onto her album. There’s Perry returning to ‘Words’ - that is also featured in accapella style. But it’s best to let the tracks speak of a creative mind in full flow.The album comes with an unusual cover photo that was taken by the actress Nathalie Delon (then partner of actor Alain Delon) who was on a visit to the Black Ark studios in the mid 1970s. The sleeve notes by Jeremy Collingwood focus on the UK sound system scene that Perry had become such an integral part of. His trips to the UK were frequent and he was amongst the small group of Jamaican producers that pioneered the development of Jamaican music in the UK.
