Official reissue of this highly influential world music classic, back available on vinyl for the first time since 1974. Limited to 500 copies, with an insert containing liner notes and exclusive pictures from the personal archive of Gordon Henderson. Gordon Henderson's musical career began in various teenage bands, performing at talent shows and dances on the island of Dominica (where he was born). In 1970 he relocated to Guadeloupe where he became the English speaking "Caribbean Soul" singer of the group Les Vikings. With Les Vikings Henderson enjoyed international hits and toured all over the Caribbean and Europe. Through the next four decades Gordon went on to write, produce and play with various bands and artists. Enjoying tremendous record sales and receiving numerous awards for his work at home and abroad. In 1973 Gordon decided to start his own band. He asked his former high schoolmate and co-musician Fitzroy Williams to select the best available young local musicians and soon after Exile One saw the light! Mixing funk, reggae, calypso and Afro-Caribbean fusion in their set, Exile One performed a popular repertoire that was deeply influenced by sixties soul music and bands like Osibisa and Earth, Wind and Fire. Because French Antillean audiences wanted to dance instead of just watch a concert, the band "Creolized" their repertoire by introducing a mix of Haitian and Calypso music styles in combination with a full horn section and modern instruments like synths. The bands' fusion of the traditional with the contemporary would turn into a new style which became a turning point in world music... cadence-lypso was born and it was a HUGE success! Exile One and their Creole dance formula would later have a profound effect on popular world music genres like Zouk and Soca. Exile One released several successful albums for the equally influential label Disques Debs and in 1975 they became the first Créole language act to sign a major recording contract with the French label Barclay. The music on this album is rich, diverse and colorful in musical styles; from Island funk stompers to bass-organ driven reggae grooves and soulful ballads influenced by American greats like Otis Redding and James Brown.
