    There were 3 or 4 different Black Art presses, back in the day.
    And now those Black Art albums are on sale from 300 – 550 GBP.

    One of the first reggae albums I bought (as an import on Black Ark records), bought the same day as an import copy of Culture’s Two Sevens Clash on Joe Gibbs records. I still have them both. Never mind the perceived value of a bit of plastic, the musical content is priceless. Every home should have one.
