This compilation collects long-lost rarities, favorites, alternate takes and outtakes from Lee Perry's legendary Black Ark studio.

“Play On Mr Music” by the Upsetter Revue featuring The Heptones, The Congos and Junior Murvin, had long been the Holy Grail for roots reggae connoisseurs. The result of an impromptu studio jam (captured on celluloid for Jeremy Marre’ s Roots Rock Reggae documentary in May 1977), the track celebrates the undeniable pull of Perry’ s musical artistry.

"Milte Hi Ankhen" by Sam Carty is a full vocal cut to the dub known as "Bird In Hand" which was included the dub master piece "Return of The Super Ape". You can also enjoy the unreleased dub mix of the deep rasta tune "Rejoice Jah Jah Children" by The Silvertones, also the unreleased take of Carlton Jackson's big tune "History", an irie roots rock version of Curtis Mayfield's "People Get Ready" by Junior Murvin and the impassioned Perry's vocal on "Soul Fire".
