Lab Overview

These are African Rhythms... passed down to us from the ancient spirits... Originally released in 1975 on the Black Fire label, this piece of DC afro-funk is best-known for the breakbeat cut "Liberation Dues." After all these years, it still can make your balls drop. I've grown to really appreciate the A-side as well. It plays as one long continuous multi-movement track, starting with the 7+ minute "African Rhythms" (Dilla touched this one on the Welcome 2 Detroit LP), weaving through funk ("Kazi" and "Tarishi"), African music, and soul jazz ("Masharki"). Nice 2020 edition on Now-Again lacquered directly from the original tapes, housed in tip-on sleeve w/ full color liner note booklet, limited one time pressing. Recommended.
