Complete UK Upsetter Singles Collection, Vol. 2

Volume 2 of 4...all of which I will post about in the coming days...started with volume 1 last week...

This series consists of every 7" single put out by the Upsetter label in Jamaica between 1969-1971...all the handiwork of Lee Scratch Perry, twisting the knobs...

From upsetter.net:
"...in contrast to Volume 1 , the 50 tracks on Volume 2 are much more upsetting and experimental. This was when Scratch first started to live up to his Upsetter nickname: weird intros, spooky instrumentals, more than one rhythm spliced together into a single song..."
Dig four skanking tracks here.
