Classic instrumental reggae album from 1973. Originally released in Jamaica (rare run of 300 copies) in 1972, this was issued in the UK with an updated track listing and slightly sped-up tempo in 1973. Additionally, this quality Orchid reissue features 2 bonus tracks not found on the original. Cloak and Dagger finds Lee Perry hitting his crossover groove with cleanly-produced, vibrant tracks with a hint of American soul and those beloved Upsetter quirks. Far from generic, each track bubbles with individual character. 14 tracks in all. Essentially Upsetter, recommended.
