Lee Scratch Perry & The Upsetters — Upsetter/Scratch The Upsetter Again ... CD 12.99

A pair of classic Lee Scratch Perry albums – back to back on a single CD! First up is the legendary Upsetter record – revolutionary at the time, still great today – and done with a spare sound that displays the roots of his unique approach! These early tracks don't have the murky smoked-out grooves of his later years, but they're filled with solid songwriting and really inventive production – the sort that laid the groundwork for the legend of the Black Ark years – and which make thing tight, focused, and not the sort of reverb-heavy mess that you might get with some of Perry's lesser imitators. Tracks are mostly easy skanking Upsetters numbers – with titles that include "Tidal Wave", "Heat Proof", "Night Doctor", "Man From MI5", "Dread Luck", and "Thunderball" by The Upsetters – plus "To Love Somebody" by Buster Brown, and "Kiddy O" by The Muskyteers (aka The Silvertones). The set also features the follow-up – Scratch The Upsetter Again – a similar vintage, with the titles "She Is Gone Again", "Mule Train", "Outer Space", "One Punch", "The Denis", "Bad Tooth", and "Soul Walk".  © 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.
