Causing An Upset


Some very cool instrumental reggae for Thursday from The Upsetters. Organ led, funky, heading towards Blackpool Wurlitzer style organ in places, The Upsetters 1970 The Good, The Bad and The Upsetters album was disowned by Lee Perry on release. Can't see why. Nice cover too.

That's a proper stomper - like a slower tempo versh of Popcorn. I'm going to have to grab that album. This came in the post yesterday full of Lee Perry treats

We're doing Kinda Country on Radio Podrophenia next week and may try and drop in a couple of country-based reggae bits in..including a ska versh of the Beverly Hillbillies theme tune

This album was apparently produced by Bruce White and Tony Cousins, and Lee Perry had nothing to do with it.

See http://www.smokeyroom.net/dubious/thegoodthebad.htm - my top Perry related reference site.

Doesn't mean it's not a good album though.

Yeah, Perry said he didn't consider it an Upsetters album.

Looking forward to the podcast Mondo
