    E-S-S-E-N-T-I-A-L deep jazz from 1970s Ethiopia! Mulatu is a cult figure for fans of both 1970s indy deep jazz (think Strata East) and African music - his records are highly prized among collectors and break fiends so it's a real joy to have these lovely reissues! This is super-deep space jazz of the highest order!

    Highly recommended!
