In 1972, Orchestre Abass released two incredible singles on Polydor. These records -featuring 'Shamarin Banza', 'Haka Dunia' and other Afro-funk masterpieces- were powerful enough to knock any music head out, but it wasn't until the discovery of some unreleased material by the band that the seeds for this project were planted. With their heavy, organ-led sound combining with the deftest of musical touches, these records were the work of a rhythmic powerhouse and Analog Africa are honoured to be in a position to present the recordings of Togo's funkiest band. All the music was licensed directly from the various composers of these songs. The vinyl is pressed on 180 gram high quality virgin vinyl and the gatefold contains previously unseen pictures and a detailed biography of this mighty band.
