Out of all of the wonderful albums that emerged from the Black Ark in the 1970s, perhaps the most under-rated is 'Super Ape.' Other albums such as 'Police And Thieves' and especially 'Heart Of The Congos' seem to capture the attention of reggae fans more readily. While those albums and other Black Ark benchmarks like 'Party Time' and 'War Ina Babylon' stand out as excellent works, these albums were collaborations with talented songwriters, especially in the case of Max Romeo. 'Super Ape,' on the other hand, is purely Lee Perry's vision. As such, it stands out as a pinnacle in Scratch's career.
