I've owned the original copy of this record and I must say, they really messed up the order of the tracks between sides on the reissues, it doesn't have the same flow or memorable buildup, it's a shame, it's just a matter of moving around the tracks.

The original track listing is as follows:

Side one

1) Dewol
2) Yekermow Saw
3) Gubelye
4) Asmarina
5) Yetatit

Side Two

1) Netsanet
2) Tezetaye Anchie Lidge
3) Sabrye
4) Ene Alanchie Alnorem

I really hope this eventually gets reissued with the appropriate track list order, it's like taking a piece of art and rearranging the pieces.

My, what a beautiful LP this one is! Great tone, teamwork, individual skill - and to top it all: a beautiful sound. Outstanding.
