Upsetters, The - Kung Fu Meets The Dragon

Double vinyl reissue of classic Lee "Scratch" Perry production from 1975 with bonus tracks!

Upsetters, The - Kung Fu Meets The Dragon
  • List Price: $34.95  
  • Your Price: $34.95
  • In Stock: NO
  • Quantity:

A martial arts-themed project, this very rhythmic LP is largely made up of instrumental versions of some of Perry's productions (Roy Shirley's "Hold Them", Linval Thompson's "Kung Fu") and other musical pieces, enriched with Perry's trademark use of percussions and production tricks (phasing, dubbing and so on) and talkover inspired by the wave of martial arts movies that were popular at the time of recording. Recorded at Perry's own Black Ark Recording Studios, it notably features ace Jamaican polyinstrumentalist Augustus Pablo on melodica (and presumably keyboards, too), his gentle playing adding some otherworldly melodic content to the sparse sound.
