    I have three Wilfilm copies from my buddy in Nigeria, all with only two numbers on the back covers, but for the matrix numbers, one has F5S/F3S in the runouts, one with F1S/F<S and one with F1S/F3S. So like a lot of records out there in general, I'm not sure how cut and dry it is with the matrix numbers in determining original '78 copies vs. that '80 repress. Labels are pretty much identical too. Who knows? :)

      Track A2, "Better Change Your Mind" is one of the all-time afro-funk/afrobeat anthems ever recorded and worth the price of admission on this one all by itself. The whole album is a great listen. Nice grooves with the groovy organ sound that defines some of the classic Nigerian music of the era. Killer vocals and rhythm section across the board!
