The Upsetters - Super Ape

  • The Upsetters

    Super Ape LP (1976)

    Island Records

Most of my friends are into Jamaican music, and particularly dub. Having sat through many smoking sessions listening to the stuff, I can name two other dub LPs that I like ("King Tubby Meets Rockers" and "Best Dressed Chicken"), but Super Ape is far and away my favourite. It's beautifully composed, atmospheric and deceptively simple - nothing sounds out of place and I'm ready to take a nap any time I hear this music.
