Performer, producer, singer, mixer, sound alchemist, eccentric, The Upsetter Lee “Scratch” Perry born Rainford Hugh Perry in 1936 , Kendal, Jamaica, is one of the most recognisable and well known characters of the reggae world.

The UK version of “The Good, The Bad and The Upsetters” was released by Trojan Records in 1970, and although it had the Upsetters name on it, Lee Perry had no hand in its conception or production. Angered that an Upsetters album was released without his involvement, Perry issued his own version of the album back home in Jamaica using the same Trojan album artwork but with totally different songs and a new stickered tracklist on the back.

Features brand new artwork and reissued for the first time with permission from Lee Perry himself

This 1971 album shows the beginnings of Lee Perry’s trademark production eccentricities with rum punch drunk steel pan drums, doom mongering monophonic synth lines, Upsetters style organ skanks and sparse arrangements that would help develop the building blocks of dub.

Contains 13 instrumental versions and a DJ version of ‘Same Thing All Over.’
