Notes

Produced by Faces' Ronnie Lane and taped in London's Marquee Studios, this lost Afro-funk classic was originally released in North America only in August 1972, and makes its CD debut here. Consisting of Ghanaian percussionist Speedy Acquaye (who also worked with The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Rod Stewart and many others), Nigerian bassist Biddy Wright (a member of the legendary Blo), Jamaican conga drummer Jeff Whittaker and London-based guitarist Peter Andrews, the quartet delivers a hard-hitting, irresistibly funky blend of rock and funk that's sure to appeal to beat-diggers everywhere.

Recorded at Marquee Studios
(P) 1972 Mercury Record Productions, Inc.
