(In the cover with "Original Wailers" on front and black back cover, in amazing shape! Vinyl is free of marks with nice gloss, but plays with some surface noise due to the origin of the vinyl.)

Lee Perry & The Upsetters —
Super Ape ... LP Island, 1976. Very Good+ (reissue)...
The King Kong of dub albums, and we're not just saying that because of the freaky deaky cover image of a super ape with a belly full of roast fish, cornbread and makka stepping on a croaking lizard with a tree in one hand and a "tree" in the other! Classic Lee Perry and an essential dub ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
