    Recording information: Randy's Studio 17, Kingston, Jamaica.
    Heartbeat are steadily issuing CD versions of their vinyl Greatest Hits collections, and it must be said that while the sound quality isn't always the best (it's noted that a number of cuts on this volume were drawn from original vinyl because tape masters don't seem to exist anymore), the sheer fun quotient is very high. Volume 3 of this continuing series is devoted to Lee "Scratch" Perry and a collection of recordings made at Randy's Studio 17 in the latter part of the '60s and the early part of the '70s, just about when ska was completing its mutation into reggae. While undeniably perverse, Perry hadn't completely lost his marbles at this point, and was beginning his experiments in sound with a vengeance -- he would later expand on these experiments with the aid of his own Black Ark studio. Aficionados will note with glee that while "Shocks of Mighty" makes yet another appearance, other Perry/Upsetter cuts such as "Kiss Me Neck" and "Freedom Train" have been included. It's an infectious collection from a series that's well worth having. ~ Steven McDonald
