Record Store Day Exclusive! Issued in 1975, this is the articulation of Zambia’s Zamrock ethos. While other albums - Rikki Ililonga’s Zambia, WITCH’s Lazy Bones - are competitors, it’s hard to best this album as it covers each major quadrant of the Zamrock whole: it came from the mines; its musicians were anti-colonial freedom fighters, it envelops Zambian folk music traditions, and it rocks - hard.

  • 2 LP set including both released versions of the album: a dry drums-up mix, and a reverb-drenched fuzz guitar dominated mix
  • RSD Exclusive Release
  • 16 page book with extensive essay detailing the history of Zamrock and notes from Amanzaz' Isaac Mpofu and Keith Kabwe + rare photos
  • digital download included
  • music label: Now-Again Records 2015
