saddle bags of lost musical gems from these intensely creative years of perry’s career.

this period saw him found his upsetter imprint, release 280+ singles, over 20 albums & rise to uk chart appeal. this album pulls together undocumented jamaican singles (& one dub plate) that beautifully showcase perry’s development as a unique & experimental producer & the wide range of influence he took from us funk, r’n’b & his passion for spaghetti westerns. featuring productions for the ethiopians, val bennett, count sticky, the mellotones & many more, this release serves as a wonderful document of this defining, boundary pushing epoch in perry’s musical output.
