In 1977, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry was in London working with Bob Marley, producing the classic track, ‘Punky Reggae Party’. In need of backing vocalists for the recording, the pair employed South African born Aura Lewis and local singer, Candy McKenzie.
Soon after, Perry returned to Jamaica was reunited with both Lewis and McKenzie in Jamaica and began employing them on sessions, along with local singer, Pamela Reed, with the trio working under the title of the Full Experience.
Over the ensuing months, the group featured on a variety of recordings for the producer at his famed Black Ark studio, backing others on his roster as well as featuring as the named act. Among the recordings that fell into the latter category were a handful of tracks that remained unissued until 1990, when they were finally issued in limited numbers in France. Among these were ‘Young, Gifted And Broke’ and ‘Can’t See You’, both of which now finally make their 7” debut, comprising the respective A and B sides of the latest release in Trojan ‘s limited edition 7” range.
As with previous titles in the series, the single, which revives the much-loved Attack imprint, is pressed on high quality, heavy-weight vinyl and comes in Trojan’s official house-bag, with a total of just 500 copies manufactured.
