Originally released on Strata-East in '73, A Message from Mozambique was the first album from Juju. The group later became Oneness of Juju (who released many sought-after digger recs and a hefty disco burner), but this debut album leans more toward heavy free/spiritual jazz vibes. The players include Plunky Nakabinde and Lon Moshe who take your mind out of the cosmos with crazy reed and percussion solos, while Babatunde keeps you grounded on congas and drums. Includes "(Struggle) Home," "Soledad Brothers," "Freedom Fighter," "Make Your Revolution Now," "Father Is Back," and "Nairobi Chants." Exact pic sleeve replica.
