Track A.4 of this album (Shaft In Africa) is a fantastic instrumental song made famous later by Norman Cook, using it as an intro for his "It Began In Africa" song that appears in the "Urban All Stars EP" from 1988 under the "Urban" Label. The Congas, Percussions and heavy breaks reminds me of Michael Viner's "Incredible Bongo Band". Shaft In Africa continues to be an essential sample by many Dj's and Hip Hop Producers.
