The single was followed by a full-length album of the same name as well as deejay Jah Lion's Columbia Colly LP. Riding this crest of productivity, Scratch then turned to a creation of his own. Super Ape offered a series of the producer's finest 1976 rhythms, from Devon Irons' "When Jah Come" and the Blue Bells' "Come Along" to Romeo's "War in a Babylon" and "Chase the Devil. All are bathed in the distinct, murky atmosphere that was becoming a Black Ark trademark, then served up in the form of dub-like de-constructions.

Don’t mistake Return of the Super Ape for a mere sequel to Perry’s 1976 classic Super Ape; it's a strange, dubby beast of its own. The mix of sweet female harmonies and alien bass on Dyon-Anaswa is delectably effervescent, though the tingly bells of Psyche & Trim conjure up a humid feeling of darkness. Don’t mistake Return of the Super Ape for a mere sequel to Perry’s 1976 classic Super Ape; it's a strange, dubby beast of its own.
