This incredible Afro-soul album was recorded in Italy in 1974 by two Nigerians, vocalist Ezy Hart and saxophonist Isaac Olashugba. Both were ex-members of Fela Kuti's highlife jazz band the Koola Lobitos, as well as The Don Ezekiel Combination, and, after recording a few Christian funk albums and touring all over West Africa, they finally settled in Italy.

Album highlight include "Bawagbe," a tuff, hypnotic Afro-soul groove with Yoruba chants, ruff congas, horns and breaks. This first reissue cmes via the respected Hot Casa label and includes a bonus cut "I'm Ready for You Baby," along with inner sleeve notes and great photos and interviews.
