About this item

Originally released in 1980, this album is the final work to emerge from the Black Ark studio, before its permanent destruction. It concludes a series of such LP masterworks as 'Super Ape', 'War In A Babylon', 'Police And Thieves', and 'The Return Of The Super Ape'. Enthrallingly, it crosses the sound-world of 'Roast Fish Collie Weed' And 'Cornbread' with new hybrids - like the irresistible eleven minute opener 'Bed Jammin', rolling and delirious, a kind of reggae prophesy of Marvin Gaye’s 'Sexual Healing', but musically richer, and more glazed, randy and visionary.
