UPsetter Riddim Shower



The vast majority of tunes in this section would have appeared in other sections of this discography if it wasn't for the discussion between other Lee Perry Aficionado's whether there is or isn't a Lee Perry connection. Many releases in this list cover this claim.
Also listed here are tunes that seem to have a Lee Perry connection but simply don't have that connnection; some are credited to The Upsetters, or have a Black Ark or Upsetter label.
This long listing also demonstrates how close many of the links were between various artists, musicians and producers and how many short-lived partnerships there were.
It's interesting when interviewed, many reggae artists can't even remember the odd single or two that they recorded. especially in the mid-seventies when Kingston was buzzing with the growing economic success of reggae music and the rapidly spreading cultural religion of Rastafari.
The peak output of Lee Perry's Black Ark came as these forces met, all oiled with huge ammounts of high grade weed, Dragon stout and over-proof rum. It's no surprise people can't remember.
