Lee "Scratch" Perry Live At Harbourfront Toronto

Toronto massive has been spoiled with the free high caliber reggae concerts lately. Last night Rainford Hugh Perry AKA Lee "Scratch" Perry played to a well packed audience, dropping hits spannin' his 40 plus year career. The mixed crowd - of all ages and descriptions - was well appreciative, responding to Perry's many cues and letting him know what heat he was bringin'. The backing band was a bit of a hodge podge mix - featuring a somewhat sedated version of Scratch's usually hard hitting riddims. Maybe all the sess being blazed slowed them some... and there was 'nuff ganja cloud Iyah! Perry however was in fine form, spewing smoke signals of his own, from his cap and not missing a beat -drawing the tunes out for some deep dubbed out positive ramblings- as inspiring as always. Check the following links for some Lee "Scratch" niceness:
