    Does anyone know anything about Martin Dumas? This record is one of my favourites and not really able to find out anything about him online.

      This sounds terrible. I'm serious. It is mixed too loud so the sound, the vocals in particular get really distorted, sounding like a shitty car stereo. The sound has no warmth to it, no fullness. It sounds like a youtube version at best. DO NOT recommend buying this. It is not worth spending this much on such a shitty version. Unbelievable.

        I assume the guitar riffs in the intro were influenced by "Earth, Wind & Fire - Sun Goddess" (1974). Sound so similar.

          I spoke to Zaf recently who is the man behind the new version and also the guy selling the original. He told me the repress is slightly different to preserve the integrity of the original.

            Great record. I wrote the "B" side song "Nonstop ti the Top" and played guitar and bass on that track. Martin was a beautiful person with a great spirit about him. He left behind a wonderful family. I had the opportunity to perform these songs with Martin at a couple of big business conventions. People just loved the uplifting message behind these songs. And fun, they were to perform live. You can reach me on Facebook through my band that I hope you would Like and Share. The Band is Transformation and here is the Link - Blessings to all you music lovers and makers!

                Anyone who voted this record 1/5 is either 1) a jealous hater. Or 2) has no soul. Either way I don't need to know you
