After launching his Upsetter label in 1968, Lee 'Scratch' Perry immediately began establishing himself as one of the islands most creative producers, with his innovative approach to music-making resulting in some of the most exciting records ever waxed. After less than a year as an independent operator, his services had been secured by Trojan Records, who, early in 1969, launched their own version of his Upsetter imprint. Soon after, Trojan issued 'The Upsetter': the very first collection entirely comprising productions by the enigmatic music maker.
