Prince Nico Mbarga scored his first huge hit in 1976 with the song
‘Sweet Mother’, this album was originally released one year later,
in 1977. The copy we have here is a ‘Rounder’ re-release from 1982.
I quote a line from the backcover; “…if you don’t start dancing
five minutes into the first song, check your pulse to ascertain
whether you’re still alive…”
This is African music with stunning guitarwork and great rhythm.
