As a Lee Perry fanatic I sometimes find myself buying dodgy-looking Upsetter albums on impulse, in the hope of uncovering some killer cuts I've never heard before. It's usually a deeply unrewarding experience, but occasionally I've ended up being pleasantly surprised.

I found "Bunny Lee & the Aggrovators aggrovate Lee Perry & the Upsetters" (great title huh?) in the bargain bin of a record store in Barcelona, and amazingly enough, I'm very glad I did....

This is despite the fact that it's on Rhino records - a label notorious for releasing shoddy, unauthorised reggae albums of very variable quality and authenticity - and the cover is absolutely awful. It features a mock-up of 2 separate photos - one of Lee Perry (in colour) and the other of Bunny Lee (in black and white) - surely those creative peeps in Rhino records' art department could have found a colour photo of Bunny Lee on the web somewhere?!

The album itself contains 26 tracks, the first 13 of which are allegedly by Bunny Lee & the Aggrovators and the rest allegedly by Lee Perry & the Upsetters (total playing time is over 75 minutes) - and many of them have been given titles in keeping with the mythical soundclash which is apparently taking place on the album (eg "Straight to Lee Scratch Perry's head", "Aggrovator colt the game in dub" etc)....

So far so dubious (I'm 100% sure that the album's release wasn't sanctioned by either Perry or Lee!)....but it actually turns out to be a great cd.

BOOTLEG BARGAIN 27 Feb. 2010
By kaysixone - Published on Amazon.com

So far so dubious (I'm 100% sure that the album's release wasn't sanctioned by either Perry or Lee!)....but it actually turns out to be a great cd. The Bunny Lee cuts sound like they're from the early to mid-1970s and could very easily be King Tubby dubs of some of Lee's productions featuring the Aggrovators (some definitely are - eg the aforementioned "Aggrovator colt the game in dub" is a version of Johnny Clarke's "None shall escape judgement", "Warmonger dub" is a version of "Too much war" by the same singer, "Dread locks rasta love dub" is a version of Linval Thompson's "Don't cut off your dreadlocks" etc). And the Lee Perry selections turn out to be tracks from his classic "Blackboard Jungle" album with a few extras thrown in for good measure.

So - all in all some excellent examples of early dub, and for the price I paid - a real bargain.
