Thanks to Taran and the folks behind Fat Headphones we had this treat and many other rare African records in the shop at Vamp. I quickly took this one home for myself. In my eyes not the very best Lijadu Sisters album to have, that would be the 'Horizons Unlimited' LP in my opinion, but this is still a great one indeed. Probably most desirable now after getting exposure on the well known 'Soul Boulders' mix CD. That's what brought my attention to this gem of a track.
A lot of amazing records Taran brought into our shop and surprisingly they just sat on the walls. I suppose there's just not enough big ballers out there these days to scoop these up. These LP's were priced to move though, and a few have moved quickly out the door. There's still some really good ones in our shop, and if you dig Afro-soul-funk-rock-highlife albums you should really stop by. Joe Mensah, Christian Essien, Veno, and Apostles having been on our walls recently just to name a few. So, again, a shameless plug for the Vamp record store and a big thank you going to Taran Escobar-Ausman who is one of our newest sellers. We're super proud to have him.
