✨✧ Lee Scratch Perry & The UpsettersClint Eastwood/Many Moods Of The Upsetters (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), 1969/1970. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two early classics from Lee Perry & The Upsetters – back to back in a single set, with an insane number of bonus tracks too! Clint Eastwood is a record that furthers the idea of the outlaw in reggae – as Lee Perry takes the Upsetters past the safer territory of ska and rocksteady, and brings in a few great guests who all get the benefit of his studio magic as well! The rhythms are nice and deep, and produced with that monstrous sense of sound that Scratch had right from the start – soulful vocals bursting out where needed, but all unified together with a mad mix of echo, organ lines, and super-heavy bass. Titles include "Return Of The Ugly", "For A Few Dollars More", "Taste Of Killing", "Clint Eastwood", "My Mob", and "I've Caught You" by The Upsetters – plus "Rightful Ruler" by U Roy, "Prisoner Of Love" by Dave Barker, "Ain't No Love" by Winston Holmes, and "Selassie" by The Reggae Boys. Many Moods Of The Upsetters is a record that has the group stepping hard on some great instrumentals – then backing up some guest singers who really help give the record some shape! The instrumentals often have this great organ line in the front – produced with lots of cool sounds by the young Lee Perry, so that the instrument sounds very different than in Jamaican songs from just a few years before – and also used in ways that would disappear during the dub years later, with this really crazy sound that often gets weird and spacey. The vocal cuts are great too – maybe a bit straighter, but a reminder that Scratch really knows what to do with a singer too. Titles include "Exray Vision", "Low Lights", "Soul Stew", "Games People Play", "Serious Joke", "Beware Fade", and "Mean & Dangerous" by The Upsetters – plus "Cloud Nine" by Carl Dawkins, "Can't Take It Anymore" by David Isaacs, and "Goosy" by Pat Satchmo. 2CD set features 24 bonus tracks – more cuts by The Upsetters, Busty Brown, Lennox Brown, The West Indians, Pat Satchmo, The Bleechers, Lloyd Douglas, The Ethiopians, and others.

✨✧ Lee Scratch Perry & The UpsettersScratch & Company Chapter 1 (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Clocktower/Get On Down, Mid 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pivotal Black Ark material from Lee Perry – with brilliantly tripped out echoey dub production – and scorching instrumentation laid down by the mighty Upsetters! Split roughly in half between Perry's nicely gritty instrumental moodcraft and hazy vocals, this collection features some uber prime Upsetters material. It's all hear – heavily rumbling bass grooves, tripped out, though spiritually resonant vocals and just enough of smoky haze without getting too thick to breathe. Amazing stuff! Includes "Scratch The Dub Organizer", "Bush Weed Corn Trash", "When Jah Come", "Curley Dub", "Serious Joke", "Who You Gonna Run To" and "Tighten Up". CD
(In a very cool Japanese-styled, LP-like cardboard sleeve cover!)

✨✧ Lee Scratch Perry & The UpsettersBattle Of Armagideon (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1986. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really striking mid 80s effort from the legendary Lee Scratch Perry – done at a time when his name and reputation had risen strongly on the global scene – which also seems to come through in the music as well! There's a wider range of styles going on here than before – and Scratch is more upfront, less hidden behind his own production – feeling that sense of mission as a messenger for madness that he seemed to take up at the time – a quality that comes through both in his lyrics and vocals, and in the nicely mish-mashed production as well! The set is credited to The Upsetters, but not the classic lineup – more a cast of characters behind much of the classic Black Ark material, though in good command of Scratch's brand of funky reggae. Titles include "Introducing Myself", "Time Marches On", "The Joker", "All Things Are Possible", "Grooving", "Drum Song", "I Am A Madman", "Show Me That River", and "Sexy Lady". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lee Perry & The UpsettersSound System Scratch ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Dub rarities from Lee Perry at Black Ark studio – rumbling riddims and hazy atmosphere that is as hypnotic and incredible as ever – a wealth of material rarely heard outside of sound system dances collected by the unbeatable Pressure Sounds label! A steady, if often seedy rhythm holds this magical dub plate mixes together – with more tripped out touches on the outer edges – be it a trippy use of echo, clattering bits of percussion or harder to explain vibes. Amazing stuff featuring Lee & The Upsetters with Augustus Pablo, Keith Rowe, Winston Right, Clive Hylton, Junior Murvin and others. Includes "Dub Plate Pressure" by Lee Perry, "Lama Lava Mix One" by Agustus Pablo & The Upsetters, "Groove Dubber", "Groove Rider", "Jucky Skank", "Zeal Of The Lord", "Dub Of The Lord" and more by The Upsetters, "Bushdub Corntrash" by Winston Wright & The Upsetters, "Roots Train Number Two" by Junior Murvin & The Upsetters, "Living Dub" by Keith Rowe & The Upsetters and more. 20 tracks in all.

✨✧ Lee PerryAfrica's Blood (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $27.99 28.99
A real moment of righteous power from Lee Scratch Perry – as you might expect from the image on the cover – clearly indicating a strong sense of pride and identity that also tracks with the 70s shift in Jamaican music too! Lee's the producer here, but also extends full creative control throughout – which makes the album's mix of vocal and instrumental tracks feel much more like some of the unified albums from the Black Ark era, than previous Trojan packages which usually just culled together previous singles. The album's got lots of instrumentals billed to The Upsetters – including "Move Me", "Surplus"," Go Slow", "Not Guilty", "Long Sentence", and "Bad Luck" – and other titles include "Do Your Thing" by Dave Barker, "Well Dread (version 3)" by Addis Ababa Children, "Isn't It Wrong" by The Hurricanes, and "Place Called Africa (version 3)" by Winston Prince.

Lee Perry & The UpsetterUpsetter Collection ... CD
Trojan (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $14.99
A nice selection of Upsetters tracks, and other Perry productions, from 1969-1973. Though he had yet to make the mothership connection through the Black Ark, his vision is fully formed on all these funky numbers, and it's clear where much of his inspiration was coming from with "Freak Out Skank"and other numbers like "Cold Sweat". A total of 16 groovy Scratch creations, mostly by the Upsetters: "Return Of Django", "Django Shoots First", "The Vampire", "Drugs & Poison", "Sipreano", "Black IPA", "Tipper Special", and the "French Connection", plus The Bleechers "Check Him Out", The Gatherers "Words Of My Mouth", Carlton & His Shoes "Better Days", and the Perry numbers "Cow Thief Skank", "Bucky Skank" and "Kill them All".

Lee Perry & The UpsettersSuper Ape ... LP
Island/Get On Down, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.98
The King Kong of dub records, and we're not just saying that because of the freaky deaky cover image of a super ape with a belly full of roast fish, cornbread and makka stepping on a croaking lizard with a tree in one hand and a "tree" in the other! Classic Lee Perry and as essential of a dub set as there's ever been, rendering Scratch's dense, multi-layered Black Ark rhythms in all their raw glory, with toasts and vocal snippets darting in and out of the dubs courtesy Prince Jazzbo, the Heptones, Dillinger and Scratch himself. With 10 incredible cuts: "Zion's Blood", "Croaking Lizard", "Dread Lion", "Patience", "Dub Along", "Black Vest", "Underground", "Curly Dub" "Three In One" and "Super Ape". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousBlunted In The Bomb Shelter – The Madlib Compilation ... CD
Sanctuary/Antidote (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet! We weren't certain at first whether to call this a hip hop or a reggae CD, since it's 44 mighty tracks of burning reggae classics, mixed continuously front to back like a hip hop mixtape, by West Coast beatmaker extraordinaire Madlib – it's as if there's nothing he can't handle! Everything from Dee Jays to funky reggae covers of soul numbers like "Shaft" to sweet vocal numbers, mad Tubby dub rubs and Scratch Perry's skanking party R&B get tossed in the mix for a solid island jammy. Top notch shots like Dillinger's "Flat Foot Hustlin", Prince Far I's "Destruction Sound Battle", Prince Jammy's "Throne Of Blood", Don Drummond's "Man In The Street", Linval Thompson's "I Love Marijuana", The Aggrovator's "Stop The Dubbing", Horsemouth Wallace's "Herb Vendor", The Chosen Few's "Shaft", Dennis Alcapone's "Dj's Choice", Brent Dowe's "Reggae Makossa", Lee Perry & I Roy's "Space Flight" and The Upsetters "Popcorn", plus many, many more.

Island/4 Men With Beards, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A stone 70s classic in the Island Records catalog – proof that although the label was scoring big with some of their superstar acts, they still had a great ear out for groundbreaking reggae material! The mighty Max Romeo works here with Lee Scratch Perry in the studio – who gives him fantastic support, at a level that opens up really righteous currents in his music – a fantastic blend of the roots reggae spirit of Romeo and the studio genius of Perry! Romeo's soulful inflections matched perfectly to the dark, swampy Black Ark grooves – on titles that include "War Ina Babylon", "Chase The Devil", "Stealin'", "One Step Forward", "Smile Out Of Style", "Uptown Babies", "Tan And See", "Smokey Room", and "Norman".

✨✧ King TubbyKing Tubby's In Fine Style ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1970s. Used 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
If there's one artist who's name is synonymous with dub, it's the master himself, King Tubby! And while his name has been pasted onto more than a few dodgy compilations over the years, this double disc set's no joke. 46 bottom heavy tracks, with Tubby's inimitable touch on the mixing console and echoplex, guaranteeing a deep space journey into the heaviest rhythms around, with sinewy basslines, reverb laden horn stabs and chattering percussion keeping proceedings moving. The first disc starts out with several dubs of the Crystalites, before moving into a nice, nice batch of Tubby blessed Lee Perry tracks by the Upsetters, like "IPA Skank", "Freak Out Skank", "Dub Organiser" and "Elephant Rock". But Scratch isn't the only top notch producer on board, as there's numbers by Rupie Edwards, Bunny Lee, Keith Hudson, Augustus Pablo, Linval Thompson and Niney Holness too! Bouncing dubs like "Stalag 17 Version", "New Style", "Fire From The Observer", "King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown", "King Tubby's In Fine Style", "Jah Jah Dub", "Conquering Version", "I Am Lost Dub", "Gorgon Version", "A Harder Version", "A Ruffer Version" and "Satta Dread" will keep this set rocking on and on!
