Cloak & Dagger (Get On Down)

LP (Item 923087) Get On Down, 1979 — Condition: Near Mint-
(reissue)
Also available
Lee Perry — Cloak & Dagger ... LP 18.99

Sweet! One of the harder Scratch efforts to track down over the years, one we're always glad to come across! Recorded in the late 70s, when his wigged out follies at the Black Ark had reached their peak –though there's a bit of debate over whether these tracks were actually recorded at the Black Ark – this is one of the first albums issued after the studio burned to the ground. Whichever side of the argument you fall on, you can't argue with the tracks on this one: spare instrumental Perry-isms with jaunty guitar, loping syncopated drums and bouncing bass, plus Tommy McCook's horn. Titles include "Cloak & Dagger", "Hail Stone", "Musical Transplant", "Liquid Serenade", "Iron Claw", "Rude Walking", "Cave Man Skank", "Pee Wee Special" and more.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

You could go 'round and 'round with music historians arguing whether or not this album, or Java Java Java or Aquarius Dub was the first full length dub LP, but it makes no difference to us, this is one mighty set of Perryisms, wrought in the pre-Black Ark era.

A record that's not only a landmark in Jamaican music – but also a set that was to reggae what Curtis Mayfield's Superfly was to 70s soul!

If you had to imagine what Captain Ganja & The Space Control might sound like, you'd probably get it right from the very first try – especially if you were looking at the cover of the album at the time!
