Black Ark In Dub is another piece of Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry’s limitless musical puzzle. Featuring a bedrock of deep and heavy rhythms recorded at the Black Ark just before its demise.
Originally released in 1981 the hard to find Black Ark In Dub features bass heavy spooky dub deconstructions of ‘Jah Love Is Sweeter’, ‘Ethiopia’, ‘Lion A De Winner’, ‘Open The Gate’, ‘Guideline,’ and ‘Mr. Money Man’, along with an embellished dub version of Ras Keatus I ‘Dreadlocks I’ and the much sought after ‘Guidance’ a longtime Jah Shaka killer exclusive to this set. Black Ark In Dub remains a frozen sonic timepiece, captured at the beginning of the end of one era and poised at the start of another.
