Last copies of this 2016 RSD release. This album, one of West Africa's very rarest, was recorded for the Decca label in Lagos and only ever released in tiny numbers in Nigeria in 1975. A rich mixture of poly-rhythmic Afro-soul, jazz, highlife, and Afrobeat it has an undeniable flavor with Joe Mensah's arrangements, keyboard playing, and vocal style adding an extra sophistication to proceedings. This is the first time the album has been available in its original format since the mid-1970s.
