Agree with Toadspotter. I would guess most of the listings posted under this release are in fact modern represses and not the original. The original has a slightly smaller diameter label on the record and does not have a glossy bright white cover (Original will show some paper discolouration from age.) The pictures on this listing accurately show an original, pay close attention to details and ask the seller for pictures. The original and 2013 Jamaican repress are very similar in details however sound very different. (I own both)

How good does this press sound please ? I really consider buying it, and I guess it sounds fine, but I'd like a testimony

Great sounding release with a whole extra record of additional material in a gatefold sleeve with liner notes on the album; what's not to love? Sounds pretty great to my ears too.

Please stop listing post 2000 reissues here unless you have a 1977 record to sell in Mint condition like you sellers are saying! Come on folks -be honest.

This is a classic album, but it's fairly relaxed and the tunes all move at the same pace so you may find it a little monotonous, however I quite like it. The title tune is one of Reggae's most abiding anthems, and "Declaration of Rights" and "Yim Mas Gan" are also big tunes, but whilst all the other tunes sound OK in isolation, other than "African Race", I don't think the other original tracks are that great. The bonus tracks on the 1993 CD release are all good though.

the lp with the br001 matrix is a slightly alternative mix to the klik pressing - listen to the intro on african race which is clearly different - i have been told that the abyssinians themselves pressed a limited quantity in the uk on black vinyl (i'm not sure about the red ones) to tout around to record companies who were investing in reggae at the time.

Album also known variously as 'Satta Amasagana' or 'Forward On To Zion' depending on who pressed it up.
