One of my favorite VMP releases, I never would have picked it up in the store but I'm so glad it's in my collection!

This the best mix of the album - the EQ on the Island mix is horrible, quite noticable in the way the female vocals have been made very trebly and screechy. You will only realise this when you listen to the original mix - it was a revelation when I first heard it when I was lucky enough to track down an original copy. Island also messed up the tracklisting; the original running order makes much more sense, it is more intense and brooding.

Anyone else's copy starting to warp? Pretty bummed, the outer tracks are almost unplayable after only a few months.

The CD is listed as released 1989 at http://rateyourmusic.com/release/album/the_upsetters/super_ape_f3/
Interestingly, the "Island" on the cover is replaced by "Mango". I had thought it was Island, like "Super Ape Island", not referring to the record label.

I think this is my favorite VMP release so far. Great bass on this, which is what it needs.

This is, in my opinion, the definitive version of Super Ape. Simply Vinyl does a wonderful job with this LP. The album sounds amazing and is pressed on beautiful 180 gm vinyl. No noise, pops or distortions.... just a clear and dynamic recording. The sleeve is also beautifully reproduced in great detail. I have seen and heard lots of inferior pressings of this album... the simply vinyl one is great.

The Jamaican mix is far superior the Island mix which adds a harsh treble; until you listen to the Jamaican mix you won't realise how much Island damaged the sound...
