Day 59 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - King Tubby - Straight To Scratch Head

Micron Music was one of the most underrated labels in reggae's early days... using a host of studios and producers including Bunny Lee & Lee Perry, their output was pretty top-notch.  In 2008, the UK-based Pressure Sounds released a compilation of Micron's recordings from 1973-1976 on an album called Every Mouth Must Be Fed and to me, it was an eye-opening experience.  The 59th track in the 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge is a King Tubby production called "Straight To Scratch Head" which is the dub version of a classic Junior Byles tune called "Lorna Banana."
