Sam Carty “Bird In Hand”/”Happy Roots”/”Upsetting Rhythm 2” (Black Art)

Lest anyone doubt the mad genius of Lee “Scratch” Perry they need only listen to “Milte Hi Ankhen” aka“Bird In Hand” by Sam Carty.  The hauntingly mystifying tune, which was originally released on the Return of the Super Ape LP, is a version of Naushad Ali’s Hindi love song “Milte Hi Ankhen Dil Hua Diana” — ‘the moment our eyes met, hearts went bonkers’ — as featured in the 1950 film Babul.

Honest Jon’s describes the newly released 10″ “[a] stunning alternate mix of ‘Bird In Hand,’ from the Return Of The Super Ape album — together with its dub; and a one-away ‘Upsetting Rhythm 2’, in the fashion of the last Rockashacka Disco Bum.”

A must-have collectible from Rockashacka…
