The Upsetter still has gold that hasn’t been unearthed (or at least distributed in a fine collection such as this) to this day! Pressure Sounds dropped this gem a few months back, but it sat idly by in my record stacks until last evening when I tossed it on the turntable. Exceptional tunes!
Tony Fearon’s (aka Clinton Fearon of Gladiators fame) “Message to the Nation” dropped me to my knees. Incredibly powerful vibrations and a shining example of why I still dig for records. There’s always an unheard record out there waiting to be listened and to deliver the shot to the head that makes you think “Damn! How’d I go this long without hearing this?!” That was the case with this 45! With a dubwise version on the flip to boot, I was left shakin’ my head. Wicked!
