Lee Perry’s time at WIRL Records, later to be renamed Dynamic Sounds Studios, was a very productive time in his career. A run of great singles and the shaping of a new sound, the beginning of what we know today as Reggae.
A dispute over credits and money saw Perry leave Studio One and work with various producers including Clancy Eccles and J. J. Johnson, before arriving at the door of producer Joe Gibbs in 1967. Here he would write songs and produce hits for artists such as, Errol Dunkley and the Pioneers. A tune cut during his time with Gibbs, voiced a snipe at fellow employee Dodd, a trademark that would become an outlet for his frustrations in the business. This particular tune ‘The Upsetter’ would also provide another moniker and a name for his label ‘Upsetter’. Again lack of musical credit and financial reward saw Perry move on this time to WIRL (West Indies Records Limited) Records, working alongside manager Clifford Rae, who would provide studio time and pay for pressings in return for helping to promote and distribute WIRL product, which Perry would carry out on his trusted Honda 50 motorcycle around Kingston town.
This period at WIRL saw some inspired work from Perry. ‘Run For Cover’ was another musical blow to a previous employer, Coxonne Dodd and featured the Sensations on backing vocals and Lynn Taitt’s guitar picking skills. ‘People Funny Boy’ was a massive hit for Perry going on to sell over 60,000 copies.
