This is perhaps the best album from cult Ethiopian deep jazz hero Mulatu Astake, reissued on CD for the first time ever!

Beautifully packaged in a mini card replica LP sleeve, this is a Japanese-only release with an Obi strip at a specially discounted price!

This highly sought-after rarity is probably the best AFrican deep jazz record there is - imagine a 1970s indy label deep jazz release but recorded in Africa on a label run by the national airline!

This truly is one of those 'holy grail' records so it's a real delight to be able to offer such a pleasing CD reissue - and remember the vinyl reissue is also still available!

Very highly recommended!
