Great album and very nice pressing with no pops or clicks.
I did notice a bit of volume drop on a couple of tracks, so i guess the 're-mastering' missed something there ?
Very minimal packaging with single (non-gatefold) cover, plain white inner sleeves, no poly bags, no download code, no inserts.
I don't think much of the essay on the back either, which downplays Pharoah's work from the late 60s-early 70s.
Would have been better to quote some interviews with Pharoah himself.

what do they mean when they hype on the obi "comes with liner notes", are they just talking about the summary on the back of the outer sleeve or some kind of booklet?

Great reissue of Africa by Balades Sonores. From start to finish this double album is so rich in musical content, production too. Orange vinyl is a great touch. Sound quality and packaging all excellent. Only 100 copies on orange and really happy to own one.
