Upsetting The Nation is another out of print Trojan collection that was one of the best you could get back in the day. It's a personal favorite of mine, since along with The Upsetter Collection it was one of the first Lee Perry collections that I bought. It's a terrific showcase of some of Lee Perry's hottest productions from the early days. Highlights include the heartbreak skank of The Termites' "I'll Be Waiting", the groovy "Man From MI5" by The Upsetters, and the irresistible "Prisoner Of Love" by Dave Barker.
