Saw LSP at Camp Bestival many years ago. Incredible stamina for his age and a great performance. RIP Mr Perry.

What a man!

Educate me please. I had a “reggae” 45 single from late ‘70s by The Upsetters. An instrumental - I can’t remember the title, but it made the UK charts. Same folks?

It’s somewhere around the house. I’ll try and find it tomorrow.

Yes. Scratch was the Upsetter with various band members over the years who made up the Upsetters.
