Dry Acid gathers together some fantastic and lesser-known tunes from the early days of Scratch's career as producer. Some of the best vocalists of the day such as The Ethiopians and Pat Kelly are represented, and the music is first rate early reggae. Highlights include Denzel Laing's cautionary boogie "Beware Of The Vampire", Ernest Wilson's soulful "Freedom Train" and The Upsetters' stomper "For A Few Dollars More".
