41 years later, Lee "Scratch" Perry revisits his classic Black Ark album that defined Jamaican dub music, reincarnating the magic for the sound system generation.

the original landmark record offered a series of his finest 1976 rhythms - a dubwise, alternate universe to his Black Ark vocal hits. All are bathed in the distinct, murky atmosphere that was becoming a Black Ark trademark, then served up in the form of dub-like de-constructions. Vocals from numerous cuts seem to compete for their spot on the rhythm, while a dizzying mix of horns, flute & melodica swirl around them. ‘Croaking Lizard’ & ‘Zion's Blood’ were both thick, muscular constructs from the Upsetter session team.
