there are many different versions and packages concerning lee scratch perry's 'return of the super ape'. this has to be the cleverest yet - change the title and artwork, alter the running order, and only charge £2.19 for it. why? i don't know, but i bought it anyway, as i do not own a copy and have most of the bonus material on other versions. the music? it's brilliant, of course, a sister piece for 'super ape', and an integral example of perry's genius. buy it and wonder not why! of course it still sounds like it was mastered from the wax cylinder and filtered through a s****y cloot. what price a release of the original master, and that of 'heart of the congos'.
ammended review - having recently obtained copy of 'ape-ology', and hearing vastly superior mastering, would urge those interested to buy that version and ignore this one.
