Don't know that one.
I've never been a huge fan of Upsetter instrumentals, that said I'm more familiar with the early 70's organ stuff (which get pretty irritating after a while) than any later stuff.
The vocals were always much better (both early 70's and Black Ark).

Do It Madly - (Chuck Barry Jr)
Leaving on a Jetplane - (probably David Issacs)
Lonely & Blue . Paragons (probably the Versatiles)
Teardrops falling . Paragons (tearDrops - The Versatilies??)
Chapter 3 . Lee Perry
"Boss"
Poison Sentence . Upsetters (actually Prison Sentence)
Once More
Never had a Dream (Glen Adams)
Johnny Dollar (probably Dave Barker)
It's Growing . B Brown (probably Busty Brown?)
Water More than Flour - (Al & The Vibrators)
Gee - (Al & the Vibrators)
Slip Up - Lester Stirling

Mostly Lee Perry productions except possibly The Versatiles (if it is them), the Dave Barker? and the last track which is a Bunny Lee using a Lee Perry rhythm.

Do It Madly - (Chuck Barry Jr)
:arrow: Good credo from Junior Byles' uk aka, on the back of Son Of Thunder in JA.

Leaving on a Jetplane - (probably David Issacs)
:arrow: or Glen Adams but that's no Upsetter prod, so indeed Isaacs is more likely

Lonely & Blue . Paragons (probably the Versatiles)
Teardrops falling . Paragons (tearDrops - The Versatilies??)
:arrow: right, all Versatiles from Deltone '68 are Upsetter's, so inclus Spread Your Bed, Worries A Yard, Children Get Ready, Someone To Love, Action Line, The Horse, Te Ta Toe, enz ...

Chapter 3 . Lee Perry
:arrow: read chapter 3 of Clint Eastwood by the maistro personally.

"Boss"
:arrow: aka 'The Rhythm', Upsetter pure sang drumnbass version of The Marvels' Someday We'll be Together; was also issued on the back of Duppy Conquer.

Poison Sentence . Upsetters (actually Prison Sentence)
:arrow: together with Live Injection on a blank Upsetter stamped 7

Once More
:oops: this one makes my cold sweat brake out ... an absolute Upsetter rarity and killer vocal by Errol Dunkley from late '68 released on a blanc Amalgamated (and on a uk Island for that matter), you're already a very lucky guy (or doll) when you have got that one on tape alone !!

Never had a Dream (Glen Adams)
:arrow: Glen is not a bad singer at all isn't he !

Johnny Dollar (probably Dave Barker)
:arrow: right Tim, that's Bunnies so it might be (Jamaican!) James Brown with the Upsetters on a Big 9 single.

It's Growing . B Brown (probably Busty Brown?)
:arrow: an Upsetter stamped, of Return Of The Super Ape fame ...

Water More than Flour - (Al & The Vibrators)
Gee - (Al & the Vibrators)
:arrow: early Al Campbel's Upsetter steared back to back.

Slip Up - Lester Stirling
:arrow: indeed Bunny Lee's produced horn version on Slim Smith's Upsetter tune Slip Away, 4 years later I Roy toasted Slip Out ...

nice tape ... but Once More pfffffffffffffffffffff
