Release Date:05/31/2019;Notes:In the late spring of 1968, after years spent making his mark within the Jamaican music industry as an artist and jobbing producer, Lee 'Scratch' Perry unveiled his own Upsetter Records label. Over the months that immediately followed, his exceptional talent was repeatedly reinforced with the release a series of popular 7" singles, the most successful was his ground-breaking hit, 'People Funny Boy'.
