Very nicely done reissue. Nice packaging, but I don't like tri-fold sleeves, no practical, but beside that good pressing quality and sound. I agree that mono mix sounds the best and third record with outtakes is also not boring and actually worth to listen to as well. Timeless classic IMHO.

On his bandcamp, the label says :"Strut present the first official reissue of a landmark album in the field of African music, Mulatu Astatke’s ‘Mulatu Of Ethiopia’ from 1972".
So it seems this a total legit reissue. I think Strut is a serious company. I can be wrong...
Right, the mono LP is really good, better than the stereo one.
Love this release.

Yes I agree too. The mono really shines compared to the stereo, it sounds like it was recorded during this decade !

Is this the stereo or mono master mix? Anyone that hasn't heard the mono mix needs to - it's crisper, fatter and much heavier!!

The mono pressing is much better in sound profile than the stereo mix.

I returned two brand new copies to the local store, records were badly warped...

Same comments as below, My copy came sealed, but was warped to a degree that it was barely playable. The mastering sounded flat. Origins of the repress are indeed very unclear and I highly doubt it is completely legit. I would not recommend buying this record unless you are sure about the quality of the vinyl.
