A somewhat more straightforward Dromilly Avenue outing than the last one,
ie many tunes are actually mixed at Tubby's, albeit by Jammy et al.

A heads up to audiophiles:
I've found that quite a few of the mid- to late 2000s CD's,
those with catalogue numbers ATTACKCDXX and ATTACKCDXXX
(fi ATTACKCD18 and ATTACKCD027),
appear to contain audio from lossy sources.
Of the 10 CD's i tested with... See full review

Greetings,
the track durations here appear to be the same length as on the CD editions.
It's very likely they might be the same mixes.

It looks like this UK LP release: https://www.discogs.com/release/6627053
is the one that has different mixes.

It's a nice remake of the riddim, but does lack the 'Upsetting' quality of the original imo.

In essence a reissue of Various - This Is Jamaica Ska - Presenting The Ska-Talites.
But with two tracks substituted for the then more recent Burning Spear tracks,
rather incongruous as they are not ska.

Side B has been dubbed 'Xylophone Rock' on the 2020 'Beat Down Babylon' 2 disc reissue.
Probably to distinguish it from the other recut done with Perry's children: 'Ungrateful Skank'.

It has some trademarks of the Upsetter alright, but the year is more likely 1974/75 due to the soldering/welding lyrics.

It's all personal opinion anyway of course, but to my ears there is no Upsetter connection audible on this track at all.
Also released as 'Natty Take Over' on the Lee Perry - Baffling Smoke Signal (The Upsetter Shop Volume 3) compilation.

I mistakenly remembered this album as the Dub companion to Jah Lloyd - Reggae Stick,
