LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 18

VP reissue of this classic slice of Jamaican roots music. No collection of Lee Perry's work is complete without this chapter, which was hard to get for many years, but reissued here in it's original format, with the origial cover art. 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.

VP, 1978. New Copy (reissue)
Mostly instrumental, but not quite dub, though some cuts do have Perry's vocals on top. Slow rolling and a bit murky, this set bears no relation to the Super Ape set, other than the freaky cover, but is still infused with Perry's unique vison. 10 tracks in all, including the title track, "Bir ...
