This week on Global Notes with Morning Shift and Radio M host Tony Sarabia, the new release by the legendary godfather of Jamaican dub Lee "Scratch" Perry. 

At 81 years old, Perry shows no signs of slowing down. He continues to tour and his latest release, Super Ape Returns to Conquer, reveals his creativity has not diminished with age, but like a fine wine has only gotten better. The album is a reworking of his classic 1976 album, Super Ape, which was ahead of its time.
