Super Ape ( LP )

Lee "Scratch" Perry-Super Ape




1976    Lee Perry  
Reggae Island Records
Tuotteen kuvaus:  
uper Ape offered a series of the producer's finest 1976 rhythms, from Devon Irons' ‘When Jah Come’ and the Blue Bells' ‘Come Along’ to Romeo's ‘War in a Babylon’ and ‘Chase the Devil’. All are bathed in the distinct, murky atmosphere, then served up in the form of dub-like de-constructions with ‘Dread Lion’ at the album's heart. Vocals from numerous cuts seem to compete for their spot on the rhythm, while a dizzying mix of horns, flute and melodica swirl around them. Punctuating the song's rock-solid underbelly, Perry conjures startling thunderclaps from his mixing board. Other Super Ape heavyweights include ‘Croaking Lizard’ and ‘Zion's Blood’, thick muscular constructs from the Upsetter session team. The former features an excellent Prince Jazzbo toast over the ‘Chase the Devil’ rhythm, while the latter, a cut of ‘When Jah Come’, draws its elusive meaning from vocal phrases courtesy of Heptones Earl Morgan and Barry Llewellyn. Super Ape is a dubwise, alternate universe to Perry's Black Ark vocal hits. It awaits anyone willing to heed its closing call: "This is the ape-man, trodding through creation, are you ready to step with I man?" . Includes MP3 download voucher.
