Reissue of this immensely sought after album! 

After more than three decades as a lost classic, the debut album by Washington DC soul/gospel outfit Enlightment is finally receiving a proper reissue/release. Unfortunately, the independent release of their 1984 debut album 'Faith Is The Key' was torpedoed when both their distributor and pressing plant went out of business. As a result, the record became a holy grail for collectors. It was rediscovered around the year 2000, with original copies fetching around £800 now!

Don't sleep on this one people - a disco-infused, gospel-funk masterpiece!!!
