CD (Item 811858) Trojan (UK), Late 60s/1970s — Condition: Used
4 CDs
Out Of Stock



Another Lee Perry collection? How about Another Lee Perry Collection!! 4 discs deep, and this time around Trojan has gone deep, to pull together a collection that trumps earlier sets with its depth and breadth. We hardly need to tell you no set could exhaustively cover all the ground Perry did in his lengthy career, so this set focuses on the key decade from his ascendancy in the late 60s through the late 70s, a decade when he virtually dominated the Jamaican music scene! The first three discs cover roughly three years each, and showcase Perry's wild talents with some well known cuts and more than a handful of rare gems. The last disc is a special treat, featuring dubs and instrumentals from the crucial days at the Black Ark, a powerful way to wrap up any collection. 83 (!) tracks in all, which sadly is far too many to list here, this excellent collection includes Lee Perry's "I Am The Upsetter", "People Funny Boy", "What A Botheration", "You Crummy", "Son Of thunder", "Blackman Time", "City Too Hot", "Caveman Skank", "Bush Weed" and "Huzza Hana", the Upsetters "Check Him Out", "Return Of The Ugly", "Black IPA", "Jungle Lion", "Bathroom Skank", "Black Panta", "Flashing Echo", "Dubism" and "Lizard Stick", U Roy "Rightful Ruler", Junior Byles "Place Called Africa" and "Beat Down Babylon", Bob Marley "Small Axe", Charlie Ace "Cow Thief Skank", King Koba 'Station Underground News", Horsemouth Wallace "Herb Vendor", Susan Cadogan "Hurts So Good", Junior Murvin "Roots Train Number One", Augustus Pablo "Hot & Cold" and "Lover Dub" and loads more!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
