lee 'scratch' perry & the upsetters Chapter One Dub (3 x coloured vinyl 10" boxed set, £38.95)label: Clocktower
One of the most memorable and influential releases from the canon of 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 (including greats like Aston “Family Man” Barrett & Earl “Chinna” Smith), Perry created 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 makes this among the Upsetter’s finest material. ClockTower now gives this masterpiece from dub’s supreme musical architect the deluxe reissue treatment with the vinyl housed in a durable box with magnetic clasp. This is the ultimate version of a landmark releases of the genre.
