"DUB IT UP blacker than DREAD" proclaims the striking comic book cover 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.
