Lee Scratch Perry & The UpsettersClint Eastwood/Many Moods Of The Upsetters (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
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 UpsettersJungle Lion/Freak Out Skank ... 7-inch
Get On Down, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 10.98
Lee Perry at his best – really finding the best mix of Jamaican rhythms and wilder production that made him a legend! "Jungle Lion" has echoes of Al Green's "Love & Happiness" throughout – blended with lots of echo, weird effects, and a trippy rhythm that's mighty nice! There's also a great break near the start – which follows on the flipside, which is essentially a more freaked-out version of the tune! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Lee Scratch Perry & The UpsettersScratch & Company Chapter 1 (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Clocktower/Get On Down, Mid 70s. New Copy ... $8.99 14.98
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 UpsettersUpsetter/Scratch The Upsetter Again ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy ... $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".

Lee PerryWonderman Years ... CD
Trojan, 1971. Used 2 CDs ... $24.99
In all the various personas Scratch has gone through, this is perhaps our favorite, as the black super hero Wonderman, releasing loads of hot jams on the comic book inspired Justice League imprint. This 2 disc set collects 49 tracks from that brief period, some of his best early 70s numbers, including Big Youth "Moving Version", Bob Marley & the Wailers "African Herbsman", Junior Byles "Beat Down Babylon", "Fever" and "A Place Called Africa", Dennis Alcapone "Alpha & Omega", The Stingers "Give Me Power" and "Preacher Man", Lloyd Parks "Professor Ironside", the Righteous Flames "One Love, One Heart", Prince Django "Hot Tip" and a boatload of Upsetters tracks, like "Cow Thief Skank", "Freak Out Skank", "Jungle Lion", "Black IPA", "Tipper Special" and "Ital Version", plus much,much more.

✨✧ Lee Perry & The UpsettersEastwood Rides Again (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
If there's anyone who could make the idea of Italian westerns and Jamaican grooves come together, it's the young Lee Scratch Perry – the mad musician who always had a great talent for mixing it up! Eastwood Rides Again follows the theme of The Upsetters previous classic, Return Of Django – and like that one, the groove isn't just the rocksteady rhythms you'd expect – but also maybe this more spacious version of the style, with a bit more space between the notes than some of their Kingston contemporaries – almost a mode that could be inspired by the spacious soundtrack scoring of the Italian scene, then delivered with a much grittier vibe. Most tunes are instrumentals, and titles include "Eastwood Rides Again", "Salt & Pepper", "Red Hot", "Tight Spot", "Catch This", "Popcorn", and "You Are Adorable". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 colored vinyl pressing – limited to 1000 copies.)

Heartbeat, 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet – another great collection of Scratch's murky, quirky dubs from the Black Ark!

✨✧ UpsettersGood, The Bad, & The Upsetters (Jamaican edition) ... CD
Hot Milk (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Legendary early 70s Upsetters instrumentals – a brilliant, soulful batch of Jamaican versions produced by Lee Scratch Perry – and unlike the Trojan release from around the same time, this one was released with Scratch's full involvement! Fantastic work that sounds great to this day, and in a formative mode that suggests the tricked out Scratch sounds to come a few years down the road. Titles include "Same Thing All Over", "It's All In The Game", "Big Ball", "Dracula", "Soul Rebel V.3", "Down The Road", "Some Sign", "Equalizer", "Must Reach You" and more. CD
(2013 CD version from Hot Milk UK – with all new art work!)
