Return of the Super Ape

We gave it a B+

Recorded in 1978 and released two years later, Return is a solid sequel to 1976’s dub classic Super Ape, even though it doesn’t sound much like its predecessor. Most notably, there’s a much greater emphasis on vocals (including an uncredited semicover of Rufus’ ”Tell Me Something Good”), with only a couple of proper dub tracks. It’s a little unclear what makes this bonus-track-free reissue a ”deluxe edition,” but Return is still worth going back to.
