The Upsetters

Return of the Super Ape

If there was some kind of per capita chart for the greatest music ever made then Jamiaca would win hands down!

These are 2 lps from 1976 and 1978 respectively. I could talk forever about Jamaican music...but...The Upsetters were a rolling collective that included (at times) Augustus Pablo, Boris Gardiner, Mikey Richards, Sly Dunbar, Benbow Creary, Earl "Chinna" Smith and Aston "Family Man" Barrett.

The key figure in all of this is the organiser, originator, producer, contributer and genius that is/was Mr Lee "Scratch" Perry. I love my King Tubby and my Coxsone but Lee Perry is godlike!

Thanks for these. I can never listen to too much Lee Scratch Perry.
