The Congos Vinyl, CD & tapes by The Congos at Norman Records
This 2010 album is notable for getting the gang back together, several decades after Heart Of The Congos, for a mighty new session. With Lee “Scratch” Perry at the controls, Back in the Black Ark has the full gorgeous weight of that Jamaican reggae heritage: the spirit of the Black Ark is back. And now it's back again, with this handy Utopia reissue.
