Between the twin pillars of "Cloak and Dagger" and"Blackboard Jungle Dub", the superlative, yet oftenoverlooked, "Rhythm Shower" album was also released in'73. Originally issued in a very limited Jamaican pressingwith no sleeve, it became better known when re-releasedby the Trojan label as part of its 3 LP, and later 2-CD set,The Upsetter Collection, first issued in 1986.Despite its obscurity, "Rhythm Shower" is a pivotal albumin Perry's career as a producer and bandleader; it findshim beginning to experiment with dub and developing hissingular studio sound that would come to full maturity insubsequent years.Whereas earlier albums offered plenty of instrumentalversions, on "Rhythm Shower", Perry really beginsemploying the studio sleight of hand that would becomepart and parcel for what was then the emerging art form ofdub -- dropping voices and instruments in and out of themix to create a trippy, hypnotic effect. Not to go unnoticedis the mighty Upsetters themselves, whose revolving crewof musical heavyweights included Bob Marley & TheWailers future rhythm section Aston "Family Man" Barretton bass and drummer Carlton Barrett. The powerhouserhythms they forged give Perry all the space he needs towork his mojo at the mixing desk.With one foot planted firmly in the celebrated sound of thetime and the other stepping assuredly into the future,"Rhythm Shower" is essential listening for any fan ofReggae, Dub or Lee Perry. This is crucial music. This isclassic Scratch.
