Chapter 1: The Upsetters
Vinyl LP Record
Placed within legendary reggae producer Lee "Scratch" Perry's prolific discography, The Upsetters Chapter 1 stands out as one of the eccentric genius's most interesting, adventurous works. Using a combination of established collaborators and new musicians, Perry creates a classic dub record that pulses with deep bass, echoing percussion and dissonant sound effects. Spiritual cuts ("When Jah Come") are balanced by grand dub productions ("Tighten Up"), creating a cohesive, infectious sound that rivals the Upsetter's finest material.
