Must-have reissue for the jazz funk heads. The Pharaohs' Awakening has been a sought-after piece for diggers for some time now. In fact, Luv N' Haight reissued it back in 1996 which only heightened its popularity, but it has been out of print since. Now over a decade and a half later, Ubiquity is putting Awakening back in print for a limited time! Here's your chance to make up for sleeping on it the first time. From the stomping rhythms of "Ibo," to the driving beats and free form horns on "Damballa," and the extra funky "Black Enuff," this album delivers through and through. If you have more than a passing interest in deep, afro-centric jazz that rooted in heavy funk grooves, you owe it to yourself to cop this. Seven tracks total, housed in full pic sleeve. Recommended.
