The first years of the 1970s found Perry working closely with Junior Byles, the singer who would temporarily fill the gap left by Marley. From the moment Douglas and the Now Generation band backed the singer on Beat Down Babylon in 1971, Scratch ensured that nothing but the finest rhythms were sent his way. Beat Down Babylon represents some of the finest product mixed by the Upsetter's hand and the pinnacle achievements of Junior Byles' career.

November 1972 saw the release of Byles debut album, Beat Down Babylon, which along with a series of singles that followed, established Byles as a major force in Jamaica as well as establishing him with audiences in the United Kingdom, Curley Locks being particularly successful there. Byles moved away from Perry in the mid-1970s, recording three duets. Suffering from depression, he was deeply affected by the death of Haile Selassie, unable to reconcile this with his belief in Selassie's divinity, and attempted suicide. He was admitted to Bellevue Hospital, after which his health continued to decline. Junior Byles - A Matter of Time 3:14. POOR CHUBBY LONG SENTENCE Junior Byles & The Upsetters 4:52.

Classic Roots Reggae produced by Lee Scratch Perry. This is essentially 1972's "Beat Down Babylon" with 13 additional bonus tracks from the peak of Byles (aka King Chubby's) career, a career which has been hampered and curtailed by mental health issues. The original album all sounds OK, but whilst a lot of his material represents his Rastafari political and spiritual beliefs, other than the title track, my highlights are the more lovers orientated "I Don't Know Why" and "A Matter of Time" from the original album, and "Curley Locks", and my very favourite Junior Byles tune "The Long Way" from the bonus tracks.
