By 1973 Jamaican producer-and-dubmeister-turned-recording-artist Lee 'Scratch' Perry had established Black Ark, a recording studio of his own that functioned as an effective fertilizer throughout what was Jamaica's most innovative period for sounds and recording techniques. In that year, as Perry and Black Ark entered a period of heavy dub output, Scratch recorded Cloak And Dagger. This early dub outing is a testament to Perry's lo-fi mastery as he utilized his TEAC four-track, Soundcraft board, tape delays, phasers, reverb and any other ambient sounds he could get this hands on as an instrument rather than just to record instruments. One of Perry's crowning achievements reissued here on 180g vinyl LP with the much sought after Rhino UK sleeve.
