Junior Byles

Beat Down Babylon

    In honour of the 80th birthday of Jamaica's most enigmatic music creator, Lee 'Scratch' Perry, Trojan line up a trio of seminal vinyl albums from Perry's most prolific period. Kicking the set off is Junior Byles’ influential roots classic from 1972, "Beat Down Babylon". Comprising the famed singer’s early solo recordings from the previous two years, the LP has since become a widely sought-after collector’s item, often hailed at Lee Perry’s finest work prior to the opening of his Black Ark studio late the following year. Despite its enviable reputation, the LP has been unavailable on vinyl since its original release, with this long overdue reissue sure to delight fans of Perry, early roots and one of Jamaica’s most gifted singer-songwriters.

    Patrick says: Out of press since its original 1972 release, this Lee Perry produced roots masterpiece is back on the black stuff for all the real reggae fans out there.
