Instrumentation is superb. Vocals by Alpha Blondy is crisp and clear. Any weakness? Yes. For me, track 1 sounded a little offbeat, perhaps, because it is very hard to do better than the Ojays original version.

This is a very solid CD. Guitars, horns, and drums (oh the drums!) come alive on this CD. The impeccable arrangement and masterful delivery of many tracks, especially 3, 5, and 6 shows Alpha Blondy is the real Reggae master from Africa.

It is hard to listen to this CD sitting down. I dare you to listen to track 3 sitting down. Relax your grip, and let go of your money this time. Buy this CD. You will have no regrets!

Format: Audio CD
Okay, a lot of this album is in French. I don't know French. I usually don't get into music when I can't understand the lyrics. This album is an exception. I got it about 4 months ago and I've listened to it nearly every day since then. Despite not understanding the words, I have every word memorized. Please, trust me. Buy this album. It is truly amazing. I have about 4 Alpha Blondy albums and I have to say this is his strongest.

From the opening song Wari, this is simply a musical explosion. The background vocals are perfect. The bongos are extraordinary. It's a beautiful blend of horns, guitars, drums and vocals. The instrumentals are top, top quality. Better than Burning Spear. Better than Fela Kuti. The album is extremely upbeat and positive. They lyrics are all rastafari.

The best tracks are Souroukou Logo and Quitte Dans Ça. When Alpha breaks into the chorus in Souroukou Logo, you'll be floored. The ladies singing background in Quitte Dans Ca rival the I Threes, and I know that's a bold statement.

If you like reggae, if you like African music, shoot, if you like MUSIC, you will love this album. Buy it, put it in, turn it way up, sit back and enjoy a truly amazing musical experience. You are in for a real treat.

When I first heard this album, especially "God Bless Africa" , I

got chills just as I did when I saw "Brother Bob" in Chicago in

the seventies. Buy this CD!
