Scratch The Super Ape was the original Jamaican release of Super Ape, an outstanding album of epochal Black Ark rhythms and haunting vocals. Often overlooked or mistaken for a dub album, Super Ape contains some of Perry's finest work as a producer. It's an amazing album that gets better and more intricate with each listen. Highlights include the solemn "Zion's Blood", the ganja cloud toasting of Prince Jazzbo on "Croaking Lizard", and the ethereal "Dread Lion". Essential listening. Note that this Upsetter pressing features a different track order and some slightly different titles.
