Spiritual South African jazz from 1974 essential historic pieces. “deep, resonant urgency of the Batsumi sound, a reverb-drenched, formidably focused pulse, underpinned by the tight-locked interplay of traditional and trap drums, and pushed on by the throb of Zulu Bidi’s mesmeric bass figures”

Cover printed on reverse board and includes printed inner sleeve with liner notes from Francis Gooding.

Many groups from this period did not issue recordings at all, and Batsumi are unusual in even having left an official recorded legacy.
