Super Ape (CD, Album, RE). Island Records. Lee Perry and The Upsetters for their 1976 album 'Super Ape' (mad applause and cheering)
Ape-Ology Presents Super Ape vs. Return of the Super Ape. The Upsetters, Lee "Scratch" Perry. Lee "Scratch" Perry, The Upsetters. Diamond Master Series - Lee "Scratch" Perry.
The album was originally released in Jamaica in 1978 and was the last album by The Upsetters to be released before Perry closed down his Black Ark studio. The album has been re-released on several different labels. In 1998, it was re-issued by Jet Star with five bonus tracks under a slightly different title, The Original Super Ape. The cover was by Lloyd Robinson.
Don’t mistake Return of the Super Ape for a mere sequel to Perry’s 1976 classic Super Ape; it's a strange, dubby beast of its own. The mix of sweet female harmonies and alien bass on Dyon-Anaswa is delectably effervescent, though the tingly bells of Psyche & Trim conjure up a humid feeling of darkness. Bird in Hand transforms a classic Bollywood song into a swampy lurch, and Jah Jah Ah Natty Dread rides a runaway drum machine into the deepest recesses of Scratch’s mind.
In Jamaica, the album was released under the name Scratch the Super Ape in July 1976 on Perry's own Upsetter label.
