Scratch the Upsetter - Revolution Dub (Anachron 1990)

"This is dub revolution: music to rock the nation"
Originally released in 1975, Revolution Dub is Lee Perry's landmark dub album. The record is the result of years of experimentation in his Black Ark Studio, exploring the phonic possibilities of the mixing desk and twisting the music of The Upsetters into impossible shapes. The group's easy rhythms are stripped bare and splashed with fragments of vocal or dialogue from a broken television set that burbles away in a forgotten corner. The whole thing is a bit reminiscent of the feeling you get when you sit in a dark room on a very sunny day.

Hi b2v, sorry you're having trouble. I tried the download link and got a message that says too many people are downloading files and that I'll have to wait. Maybe some kind of problem on the website. I suggest you try again later, but if you still have no luck then post another comment and I'll see what I can do about uploading to another site. Any suggestions for good filehosting sites anyone??
