Great groove but recording quality is so low. If you like hi-fi quality - forget. Raw african home-made quality. Me personally can not listen it at home

Great pressing. Such a great pressing in fact, that i'm actually going to call you a jackass if you dont pick this up.

a curious enigma artist i discovered in February of this year and immediately was hooked. there are some absolutely fascinating compositions on this album that sound like they were from the future at the time they were produced. "fantastic man" obviously been the crowning achievement but tracks like "love is blind" "Atomic bomb" and "something you'll never forget" are pretty steady stand outs too. all in all it wraps itself up nicely as a really nice introductory piece to Mr. Onyeabor's wall of work.

All three of my LPs are dead quiet, which is sadly rare these days. Great comp, great pressing.

There is a ludicrous amount of RAW FONK contained across these three discs, make sure you lace up your boogie shoes tight and that there is absolutely no dog dirt on the bottom of them as you WILL start to spontaneously shuffle, strut and slide across the living room floor when the needle hits the groove! P.S. Mam if you are reading, sorry again about the dog dirt on the lounge carpet, rug and sofa.

Bought a sealed copy and it contained only sides 3&4 and 5&6. Anyone else encountered this?

One of my best purchases of 2013, two years on this still gets heavy rotation when I feel the need for funk. Atomic Bomb ties I Wanna Be Your Dog for best sleigh bell tune. Fantastic Man is always great for when you need a little emotional lift. And When The Going Is Smooth And Good is there to remind you that this too shall pass. Heavy vinyl, full rich sound.
