Product Description

Also Features A 23 X23 Super Ape Poster. Few artists enjoy a legacy that involves a re-engineering of the very genre in which they work. Lee Scratch Perry is such an artist. As a pioneer of dub reggae Perry viewed the mixing console as musical instrument in its own right. The influence of his revolutionary approach has been felt world-wide and into genres far beyond reggae. His 1976 effort, Super Ape, is considered a masterpiece of this or any genre. Working with The Upstetters at his Black Ark studio Perry created a sound with such a lasting appeal that The Rough Guide includes Super Ape as one of their 100 Essential Reggae releases. Tracks : SIDE ONE: Zion's Blood, Croaking Lizard, Black Vest , Underground, Curly Dub. SIDE TWO: Dread In Lion, Three In One, Patience, Dub Along, Super Ape

This is a superb album. Usually dub albums strip down the sound and instrumentation, but this one seems to add layers of sound to create a dense jungle effect. Buy it and especially marvel at the uncredited Prince Jazzbo toast on Croaking Lizard. Deejay music at its best.

This is an album of laid back reggae riddims. Great songs which hook you quickly. I was, however really disappointed with the sound quality which is pretty dire. So, for me, it loses a star. Can we have a remastered version please?

legendary jamaican producer lee "scratch" perry remixes some of his best rhythms (including max romeo's "war inna babylon") and sticks on new vocals and some wizzy effects.
a very mellow experience and an essential purchase for scratch fans!
i'd rate this as perry's second best album as a producer, after the congos' "heart of the congos"

This is definately worth your hard earned money. It will brighten anybodies day and the perfect company on a lovely Spring day.

The bass and rhythm is marvellous, not knowing too much about Perry, other than the Marley connection, the Beastie Boys collaboration and the fact that he looks like he loves live - this was a very pleasant suprise.

The 180gm Vinyl is nicely pressed with a great deep bass through the bowels sound.......

Most of the tunes are amazing - Zion, Lion and especially the masterpiece Dub Along. They should prescribe that on the NHS.

So hpefully the first of a new journey into Dub for me.

I think the previous reviewers have got things about right, so I won't bore you with a load of woffle. I'll just back up the review by Gibby's Ghost and say - buy this album for 'Croaking Lizard' and you've got Prince Jazzbo at his best. An unexpected and very welcome bonus.

I don't know how this album could really be topped? Except with more Lee Perry. Or an original pressing. I bought this on CD, but instantly kicked myself for not buying it on vinyl. 180gm all the way.

in my view, this is one of the very best dub albums of all time... dark & psychedelic.

probably lee perry's best.
