The mighty Lee Perry was the producer many have said, that enticed the best work, both socially, politically and lest we forget musically from Bob Marley and the Wailers Band. This was in no short terms aided by the excellent musicians that would mutate from Lee Perry’s own studio band The Upsetters into what would become The Wailers band itself.

This set of musicians originally grew out of a group called The Hippy Boys. The core of which consisted of Glenroy Adams on keyboards, Alva ‘Reggie’ Lewis on guitar and brothers Carlton and Aston ‘Familyman’ Barrett on drums and bass respectively. This quartet played on most of the Lee Perry produced Wailers material recorded between 1970 and 1971. When in 1972 Bob Marley needed to put together a touring band to promote his work in Europe the Barrett brothers left and became an integral part of the Wailers band. So, this link between The Upsetters and the Wailers band would under the guidance of Lee Perry produce an outstanding body of music. Recorded at Randy’s Studio 17, as at the time Lee Perry did not have a studio of his own, but on checking out the various studio’s available, opted for Studio 17, liking the vibes it transmitted.
