A Scorcher from the Upsetter!
on 30 September 2012
I managed to score a few of these originals "back in the day", and they remain some of my most treasured dub-plates. Carlton Jackson's History, Junior Delgado's Sons of Slaves (seek out Sons of Dub!), Raphael Green's Rasta Train and Junior Mervin's (sic) Roots Train No 1 are all blindingly good, and it's nice to find the full length mixes on a CD at last. But throw in George Faith's haunting To Be A Lover, The Heptones' Party Time and Lee Perry's insane disco workout on Max Romeo's Chase The Devil - Disco Devil - and a bunch of other gems and what you've got here is an essential slice of reggae history. This is, as they say, all thriller and no filler. If you're even remotely into Lee Perry's sound, this is unmissable. It's a genius at the height of his powers. Made my week!
