• The Ethiopians – Obeah Book
    • Observer Allstars – Back Weh
    • 1. The Ethiopians – Obeah Book
    • 2. Observer Allstars – Back Weh

    Very rare 70s roots by The Ethiopians, produced by Niney The Observer. A steady rhythm with playful piano topped off with hearthfelt vocals. On the flip side, as expected, a deadly Oberver dub.
