Coincidentally, I was looking for a copy of 'Africa's Blood' on CD not long ago - I think it was issued in the original 12 track format (and probably mastered from vinyl) back in the mid-`90s. I've got them all on originals (bar 'Shower' - no surprise there!) but would like them on CD, so this is one for the list.

Awesome, find, jj! Every single one of those LP's, averages, 4.5 out of 5 stars. "Battle Ax", naff cover, and all, still has some of the best sounds, Perry has to offer...."Africa's Blood", and "Double Sevens", are essential listening, at the least. "Shower", is one that has escaped my capture, so I don't know, if I'll give this a punt, or not.

Depends on how well mastered, it is....But, I can tell those, that haven't any, or maybe just one of the LP's....This is a fantastic value, for all of these LP's. Wink

Looking forward, to hearing, what you, and others, have to say, about the sound.

I am satisfied, with all of the versions, I have, from the '90's....But, if the sound is superiour, I'll plump for this one, and keep the others, as back up, should anything, happen, to this set. Smile

I noticed the label is "Trojan" - whether that is any indicator of sound quality, I'm not sure.

I have the Upsetter compact set which was released way back but I'll still go for this as Battle Axe wasn't on that compilation and worth it just for that Exclamation

It seems to mimic the similar sets that have come out on Caroline (for Culture and Gladiators), having three "regular" albums plus one "rare", and also the design.

Also same as the Upsetter Compact Set but with Battle Axe thrown in. I wonder if there is any improvement on sound quality between the two releases??? (not that there's anything wrong with the Upsetter Box Set) Cool

Speaking of Lee Perry/Trojan and sound quality. Does any one know if one of the CD release for SUPER APE shows improved quality? I have an Island released on CD from the 90's and the sound isn't terrible. It's a shame as this is a classic. Like they didn't have access to the master tapes when they did the CD.

Maybe the digipack issued on Hip-O Records in 2004 with three bonus track is better?

I think this might be one of the best: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Super-Ape-Return/dp/B008J0PS14

It is also incuded in Ape-Ology, which is easier to find and possibly also an upgrade.

The first one you suggest it's now (unfortunately) unafordable. I'll probably tried Ape-Ology. Thanks Smile
