Recorded at the Black Ark in 1976, Cedric Mytton teams up with Roy Johnson on harmony vocals and Lee Perry steering the Ark with a heavyweight supporting crew, for a true milestone in Jamaican music, and a classic of universal proportions. 10 tracks, just like the original version: "Fisherman", "Congoman", "Open Up The Gate", "Children Crying", "La La Bam-Bam", "Can't Come In", "Sodom & Gomorrow", "The Wrong Thing", "ArkOf Covenant" and 'Solid Foundation".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
