The Upsetter was originally released in 1969 by Trojan to showcase Scratch's early productions in the UK. While not as monumental as the Trojan website would have us believe, The Upsetter contains a lot of great music - and who can resist that cover photo? The collection was re-released on CD in 2003 with eight bonus tracks and an essay by David Katz.
