      This is a jewl in my record collection. Incredible music and sound. The poor inner sleeves have to be changed with antistatic ones.

        Brilliant sound, brilliant jazz, makes you want to live and listen ... the vinyls have over 200g.
        It is a pity that packed in paper shits, you have to cut them so as not to scratch and change them to antistatic.

          Gonna concur with evryone else here and say this record sounds extremely good. Fully analog vinyl's no joke. The compositions are brilliant as well.

              Le double vinyle gatefold est un "Must" AAA, l'enregistrement est réellement superbe Tony est son Afrobeat certainement à son Apogée, quel délicieux partage musical, je suis resté enivré par l'ensemble fort mélodieux, le pressage reste unique par sa qualité, BRAVO, je glisserai un petit bémol d'humeur concernant le packaging , pourquoi sur de telles œuvres, mettre des sous-pochettes bas de gamme en papier, plutôt que de mettre des belles sous-pochettes antistatiques, peut-être pour éviter le sans fautes ?

                A fantastic album recorded live in the studio. Each track a masterclass of jazz / afrobeat. Recorded triple analog: one of the best sounding albums in my collection.

                  Do yourself a favor and buy this - reference level audio and inspired performances.

                    Incredible AAA recording of some super cool funky jazz. Not a bad intro to Afrobeat from the creator himself, too. Your non-jazz friends will love this, your system will love this.

                      This is an exceptionally fine piece of music which weirdly is being slept on. If you're a jazzed who enjoys it with afrobeat swirls n shades set amongst a group of super tight musicians playing at the top of their game replete with organ flourishes, funky guitar stabs and a 'bone doin' thangs that should come with a government health warning, then you should get your act together, stop reading this and buy this gem.

                        Superb pressing; flat, quiet and great music. Highly recommended 👍
