People Grudgeful / Pan Ya Machete

This is the first re-release on 7inch vinyl single of the mythic double sided Reggay single credited to producer Joe Gibbs in 1968.  Many stories revolve around this crazy single.

Lee “Scratch” Perry, who previously worked as a music producer for Gibbs, started his own label ”Upset” and got a hit in 1968 in Jamaica with his first recording “People Funny Boy” a song attacking his previous employer - Joe Gibbs - and... incidentally The Pioneers.

Joe Gibbs immediately retorted with this virulent single, starting with with “People Grudgeful” on the A side, a song many believe was sung by The Ethiopians, although it is much more likely it was The Pioneers.  The second wave of attack  was on the flip with the virulent "Pan Ya Machete" (a two face individual in Jamaican patois) also  performed by the Pioneers: "Pan ya machete, dats what you are, Two edge swords, dats what you are Scratch“.
