Chapter 1: The Upsetters
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. After releasing Perry's landmark album Blackboard Jungle Dub, Get On Down is proud to present another masterpiece from reggae's supreme musical architect. Remastered from the original analog tapes, The Upsetters Chapter 1 features the highest quality audio transfer and is packaged in a paste-on mini-LP with slip case and clear plastic poly bag, with art based on the original LP picture sleeve.
