People Funny Boy arose in 1968 from Perry’s strained relationship with one time employer, Joe Gibbs

People Funny Boy arose in 1968 from Perry’s strained relationship with one time employer, Joe Gibbs. According to Dave Katz’s People Funny Boy – The Genius of Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry: While Gibbs continued to pick up steam off Perry’s concerted efforts, Perry found the recognition and financial independence he sought was far from evident. For Perry this was uncomfortably similar to his prior relationship with Sir Coxsone: Coxsone never wanted to give a country boy a chance. No way. He took my songs and gave them to people like Delroy Wilson.

Scratch is the complex, problematic, and irreplaceable well-spring of so much brilliance in music that "normal" ideas of art and society fail to account for the magnitude of his output. As this book amplifies, "normal" ideas are something for which Perry has had little or no use for the majority of his life. Katz's thorough, excellent and devoted account of the man's life so far (and at 78, he still puts on a terrific show, as this reviewer can personally attest) can be exhaustive in its cataloguing of all things Perry, but the value of such reference material is beyond price. On a rainy Sunday, I searched for the songs mentioned in the text on iTunes, and found most of them. All those confusing Upsetters compilations and various artists collections are now chronologically navigable, thanks to Katz.

This is a serious book about reggae music - a history of the music in a way, from the perspective a single individual (Scratch). Entertaining and yet filled with facts, and especially for collectors, this book contains lots of clues and actual references to various obscure tracks that one might otherwise miss. I call it the Atlas Roadmap since I use it frequently for my various projects. Well written and thoroughly researched, we have a quality piece of work that Mr. Katz has put all of his energy into and that deserves much praise.

There are some interesting stories in there but I found a lot of it pretty tedious. Could've been edited to half the length and been a more compelling read. I considered giving up on finishing it but instead I skimmed through the repetitive parts and got through.

short and sweet here;

A well written and researched book about the mad genius behind much of reggae
as well as the modern era of remixed remolded music. His impact has been grossly
overlooked, and undervalued. A very pleasant and valuable read for any music lover

I love Lee Perry, and reggae, and reading, but not this book. While it is undoubtedly a useful historical document listing nearly all the musicians who played on nearly every song recorded by Perry, i found it so tedious that i couldn't finish it. If you are keen to know who played on which songs you will find it interesting, but if you are hoping for a well written biography, there is not much in here. Katz is very sympathetic to Perry, has obviously done an enormous amount of research, and spent hundreds of hours sifting fact from fiction, not to mention tolerating the mania of one of the 20th century's greatest artists, but what he hasn't done is written a book that could hold my attention.

I think the book is a disaster and cannot understand how anyone could call it a masterpiece. If you don't have them, you would be far better off spending your hard earned cash on Arkology or Dub Triptych. And if you do have them just play them again and wait until someone writes a better book than this. Doctor On The Go.
