The Upsetter Collection was one of the best compilations you could get for a long time (Trojan deleted it in 2004). This album has always been a personal favourite, since it was the first set of Lee Perry's music in my collection. It shows off Lee Perry and friends at their weirdest ("Cow Thief Skank", "Sipreano", "Tipper Special"), their tightest ("Return Of Django"), and their grooviest ("Cold Sweat", "Drugs And Poison"). In a word: upsetting!
