More Info:

The Jamaican dub pioneer Lee 'Scratch' Perry had the ability to attract some of the best musicians around to indulge in their fantasies. He knew how to draw the best out of those who wandered by their studios. The 1989 compilation album Open The Gate is a collection of the 12' versions Lee Perry did in the late Black Ark period. For the recordings, he gathered some of the best singers of the island, including Anthony 'Sangie' Davis, The Heptones, Leroy Sibbles, The Diamonds, The Congos, Junior Murvin and of course Perry's studio band The Upsetters amongst others. The 3LP Open The Gate is available as a limited edition of 2500 individually numbered copies on orange colored vinyl and includes 3 printed innersleeves.
