The Upsetters' "Kung Fu Meets the Dragon" (1975)

The Upsetters' Kung Fu Meets the Dragon is a sublime 1975 dub masterpiece laden with Lee "Scratch" Perry's studio magick and a martial arts movie mindset. And it's now available from Sunspot Records on 180 gram double vinyl with bonus tracks! "Kung Fu Meets The Dragon" (via OMG Vinyl)


  1. I hate to sound like a total bummer here, but Lee Perry has WAY better albums than this.  This is maybe the 130th best.  Seriously, I’m not trying to be a jerk, and I’m not kidding.  

    If you don’t know anything about him (and I’m not referring to the author here, but those readers interested in dub), these are the only three Perry albums you really ought to own:

    1. The Upsetters – Super Ape
    2.  The Congos – Heart of the Congos
    3.  Jah Lion – Columbia Collie

    These albums are so ridiculously good, that the next best mixer (arguably King Tubby) doesn’t really have anything that comes remotely close (except maybe King Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown).

    They are in a class of their own, not only within dub/reggae, but within the entire universe of sound throughout history.
