1 - UPSETTERS, THE - BLACKBOARD JUNGLE DUB - (LP) 
CLOCKTOWER


Producer Lee "Scratch" Perry's longtime house band, the Upsetters appeared on some of the most legendary records in reggae history, including the early hits of the Wailers. The group was named after Perry's 1968 smash "The Upsetter," and the Upsetter tag was also applied to his record label; although the line-up was mercurial -- essentially the roster consisted of whoever was in the studio the minute the tape began to roll -- among the key Jamaican musicians who passed through the Upsetters' ranks were siblings Aston and Carlton Barrett, Sly Dunbar, Glen Adams, Winston Wright and Boris Gardiner. Despite scoring a handful of their own hits, including 1969's "Return of Django," the unit was best known as a support act, enjoying their greatest influence through the records they made during the late 1960s and early 1970s with the Wailers, including the seminal "Duppy Conqueror," "Small Axe" and "Soul Rebel."

3 - UPSETTERS, THE - DOUBLE SEVEN - (LP) 
ANTARCTICA STARTS HERE


"Double Seven, released by Trojan in late 1973, was the last album Lee Scratch Perry would release on the label for some considerable time, and it was essentially the final album project he put together before establishing his own Black Ark studio. Opening track Kentucky Skank sets the tone with a slow creeper whose frying sounds underscore its role as a praise song to the Colonels KFC recipes; the cosmic Moog blips come courtesy of Ken Elliott at Camdens Chalk Farm studio, also prominently featured on U-Roys double-tracked, stereo-panned gambling ode Double Six. David Isaacs Just Enough was cut a few years prior, which makes it slightly out of phase with the rest of the set, though the enigmatic In The Iaah sounds mightily fresh, with its uncredited chorus said to come courtesy of the Wailers. Perrys own Jungle Lion has hilarious roars from the maestro at the start, strangely grafted atop a reggae re-make of Al Greens Love and Happiness. "Overall, Double Seven melds the soul, funk, reggae and dub elements that were constant in Perrys work during this phase. His enhanced audio spectrum and endless reference points would keep his music continually apart from that made by his peers." -David Katz (excerpt from the liner notes)
