No Name On The Bullet (Max Romeo & The Hippy Boys)
A. Clap Clap [Soul Clap] Produced by Max Romeo
During this period Max Romeo used MXR and Martin (Jimmy) Riley used MR. Later Max used MR as well.
The Hippy Boys was the name of the Barrett Brothers own band, with Max Romeo as vocalist. As part of The Upsetters they would have cut Put It On with The Wailers and Perry. This song is a reworking of this.
A. Macabee Version Produced by Max Romeo.
Another riddim that Perry obtained and used for Winston 'Dr Alimantado' Cool Maca Bee The 3rd.
The song was only ever rereleased in 2006, on Alimantado's self produced album House Of Singles.
A. Peyton Place Produced by Bunny Lee
Both Lee Perry and Bunny Lee used this rhythm for their own productions.
Pat Kelly's creation Dark End Of The Street got released on the JA Lee label as well as on the UK Jackpot label. The song also features on Kelly's album Pat Kelly Sings.
In 1998 it was re-released on Trojans compilation Dry Acid
A. Know Your Friend Produced by Bunny Lee
This original Cherrio Baby was cut at Dynamics and was the 'Festival Song' winner of 1971.
Perry adapted the rhythm for Dennis Alcapone's Well Dread. The riddim also appeared on Africa's Blood as Well Dread Ver.3 credited to Addis Ababa Children. Know Your Friend also came out on a Striker Lee 7 inch, credited to Delroy Wilson & Busty Brown.
A. 5 To 5 Produced by Lloyd Charmers
The strange vocal is what Perry called a Pocamania style, was by the man Lee Perry.
The Hippy Boys were the musicians. Perry's actual vocal A Hit Cha is repeated all over.
A. Trying To Be Free Production unknown (either Martin Riley or Lee Perry)
Aka What's The World Coming To this song appears on the compilation album Curly Locks.
Junior Byles' cut with similar lyrics got released in 1970 on the UK labels Pama Supreme and Supreme. The song appears on the album Beat Down Babylon known as Demonstration.
A. Whats Your Excuse Produced by Ranny Williams
Released as The Hippy Boys in the UK on Bullet label. Some releases carry the Produced by Lee Perry
stamp which could indicate Lee Perry distributed or co-produced the tune.
A. Squeeze Up A Dynamic Sound Production
On The Bleechers' Ease Up riddim
This early tune must be one of the first dub mixes and must have been done on the desk that Tubbys bought from Dynamics when they upgraded.
Also released on JA Tiger 7 inch as Shortwave
A. Rock Away Produced by Osbourne Kirkland
This is a peculiar one. In 2010 Kiss Me Neck already makes mention of this release, as a possbile Lee Perry production.
Its rhythm is only recently discovered to be part of the JA issue Many Moods Of The Upsetter titled Equalizer.
More so interesting is that this very same rhythm had a make-over in 1978 when two tracks on the Great Memories label were released by the same Osbourne Kirkland, here known as The High Priest. Both songs; Manchoneal Jail House Wall and Love Hits have an overall Black Ark feel to it, but not as much as you would expect from a 1978 release.
A. Let It Be Produced by Reggie Lewis
In Fams book he tells that he and Reggie Lewis cut this tune with the Soulettes for their Rhythm Force imprint.
It surfacing on the Upsetter UK label (UK 337) has always linked it to Scratch.
A. Self Control Produced by Martin Riley
As is the case with the aforementioned Let It Be this release somehow found its way in the Upsetter UK series (UK 336).
This pre-release indicates that it's in fact a Martin Riley produced track.
