Heart of the Congos is a roots reggae album by The Congos, produced by Lee "Scratch" Perry at his Black Ark studio with a studio band including Boris Gardiner on bass and Ernest Ranglin on guitar. The album was released in 1977. It is noted as being one of Perry's masterpiece productions of the Black Ark era.
The first issue of the LP in Jamaica was a very limited release said to consist of only several hundred copies. The original mix of the album was not officially re-issued on either LP or CD until 2017's 40th Anniversary Edition. Until 2017, all editions subsequent to the first Jamaica release feature a 2nd, substantially different, mix by Lee Perry. The 40th Anniversary Edition includes both mixes of the album, as well as ten bonus tracks.
The album was listed in the 1999 book The Rough Guide: Reggae: 100 Essential CDs.
Pitchfork Media ranked the record at #46 on its "Top 100 Albums of the 1970s".
