This Tezeta album, the band’s second recording, released in 1975, is
one of those that have been impossible to find for nearly three
decades. Sourced by Awesome Tapes From Africa and expertly
remastered by Jessica Thompson, its unique and funky renditions of
standards and popular songs of the day are so quintessentially
Walias, flavorful and evocative. Hailu's melodic organ, unashamedly
front and center in every track, makes even the complex pieces accessible.
Profoundly engaging; it's an immersive trip down memory lane for
those of us getting reacquainted with it, while also an enthralling and
gratifying experience for fresh ear
