DIP Presents The Upsetter is an obscure collection of earlier Lee Perry productions (1973-75). Other than a few exceptions, most of this music is very esoteric, and even if it's not all crucial, the sheer obscurity of it makes for interesting listening. Highlights include the menacing yet funky "Enter The Dragon", the amazing "Cane River Rock", and "Time", a wonderful Gladiators song mistakenly credited to The Upsetters.
