The Complete UK Upsetter Singles Collection, Vol. 4

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
This is the final installment in Trojan's monumental reissue series covering the entire output of its Upsetter subsidiary, the imprint under which Trojan distributed singles produced by Lee "Scratch" Perry in the U.K. between 1968 and 1973. The sound quality is somewhat improved over the earliest singles documented in Vol. 1 of this series, but all of the basic elements remain essentially the same: the effortlessly propulsive skank of Perry's studio band, the Upsetters, the A-list vocalists and instrumental guests who include top DJs like Dennis Alcapone and Big Youth, as well as organist Ansel Collins, singer Junior Byles, and even Bob Marley, and Perry's own signature ...

The sound quality is somewhat improved over the earliest singles documented in Vol. 1 of this series, but all of the basic elements remain essentially the same: the effortlessly propulsive skank of Perry's studio band, the Upsetters, the A-list vocalists and instrumental guests who include top DJs like Dennis Alcapone and Big Youth, as well as organist Ansel Collins, singer Junior Byles, and even Bob Marley, and Perry's own signature vibe, which manages to be mystical, rootsy, vulgar, and sanctified all at the same time. Highlight tracks include Wesley "Germs" Martin's brilliant "Whiplash" chatted over the ubiquitous "People Funny Boy" rhythm, the classic version of the Wailers' "Keep on Moving," and Junior Byles' "Beat Down Babylon." As always, the packaging includes an informative overview essay and extensive track-by-track notes. Inevitably, some of this material is duplicated elsewhere in the Trojan catalog; however, for hardcore Perry fans, the combination of rare material and chronological presentation makes this entire set a must-own.
