Heavy Rain

Lee 'Scratch' Perry - Heavy Rain

A dub companion to the critically acclaimed Rainford album that sees the Upsetter and co-producer Adrian Sherwood radically re-version the original tapes with a host of guest musicians including Brian Eno and Vin Gordon. Brian Eno makes an unexpected right channel entry into “Here Come The Warm Dreads,” a heavily processed sound system overhaul of Rainford highlight “Makumba Rock,” cheekily re-titled as a nod to Eno’s own debut solo album. It’s important to note that it’s not all Rainford re-works though: “Dreams Come True” and “Above And Beyond” are Scratch/Sherwood originals, heard here for the first time.
