    In 1979, long-time Highlife veteran Aigbe Lebarty decided to try his hand at high-energy disco funk. Unity is  a sure-fire dance floor stomper that channels ‘Ring My Bell’ and  is the undisputed highlight of the album. It rattles along in a wonky, skittish fashion, with the high-pitched toms dueling with the Sex Bombers...
    The last ever album from the Elcados, it starts with the title track, a bouncy reggae number guaranteed to fill the dance floor. ‘Cross Over Reggae’ keeps the mood light before ‘The World Is Full Of Injustice’ delivers a bit of Rasta indignation. Funk monsters ‘Marry The Poor’ and ‘Funky Music’ bring it all home.
