Various Artists The Upsetter Selection: A Lee Perry Jukebox
- Words: Patrick Sisson
- Label: Trojan
Would you trust a man who burned down his own studio to do justice to his musical archives? Lee "Scratch" Perry dresses down his production genius by acting like a charming acid casualty, but his blunt stunts suggest a master prankster. He shows a similar sly wit on this soulful and eclectic overview of his career. Given just two discs, anyone would struggle to assemble the definitive Upsetter greatest-hits collection. Perry forgoes that route, charting an eccentric course that captures his independent spirit (check the diss track against Trojan founder Chris Blackwell) while indirectly hitting all the pertinent historical markers.
