The Complete UK Upsetter Singles series is a fantasic collection of all of the 7" singles that were relased on the Upsetter UK label between 1969 and 1973. Trojan saved some of the best for last: the series concludes with some truly dynamite numbers, including the Stingers' "Preacher Man", some nice Dennis Alcapone DJ shots, and the last of the Wailers singles (sadly, the deadly "Preacher Man" has the first couple of seconds cut off for some reason). Also notable are the full-length versions of the mind-bending "Cow Thief Skank", and its insane version, "7 & 3/4 Skank". Other highlights include Ansel Collins wonderful "Black Supreme", the Righteous Flames' "One Love One Heart", and the raucous "Jungle Lion". Probably my favorite set in the series.
