Condition - Near Mint 

Fantastic and incredibly rare Afro-disco album from 1978. Originally released on the seminal French disco label Barclay, this album seamlessly blends elements of African, Afrobeat, Funk and Disco styles, with segments continually morphing and evolving into new tracks. Irresistibly funky and percussive, this album’s drumming patterns and melodies grandually hypnotise the listener, with only outbreaks of African chanting breaking up the grooves.
