"Two seminal Trojan albums from the golden age of reggae. Annotated by Lee 'Scratch' Perry biographer, David Katz/ Lee 'Scratch' Perry is still actively touring. Released by Trojan Records at the height of the reggae explosion of late 1969, The Upsetter introduced the world at large to the work of musical genius Lee 'Scratch' Perry. Comprising nine compelling instrumental sides from the Upsetters, the set also features fine vocal offerings from Busty Brown and the Silvertones, disguised as the Muskyteers. The following year, Trojan released the popular follow-up, Scratch The Upsetter Again, which further demonstrated the producer's increasingly innovative approach to music making that was beginning to display elements of the developing dub sound. Annotated by Lee 'Scratch' Perry biographer, David Katz, the CD provides a wonderful opportunity to enjoy and experience the early work of a man whose work significantly contributed to the transformation of the sound of Jamaican music."
