180 gram vinyl re-issue of this classic 1970's Upsetters album with an extra disc of additional tracks in a gatefold sleeve. "Kung Fu Meets The Dragon" is a martial arts-themed project, largely made up of instrumental versions of some of Perry's productions (Roy Shirley's "Hold Them", Linval Thompson's "Kung Fu") and other musical pieces, enriched with Perry's trademark use of percussion and production tricks such as phasing, dubbing, talkover etc. and inspired by the wave of martial arts movies that were popular at the time. Recorded and produced by Perry at his own Black Ark Studios, it notably features ace Jamaican polyinstrumentalist Augustus Pablo on melodica (and maybe keyboards as well), his gentle playing adding some otherworldly melodic content to the sparse sound.
