Here we have a slice of history - the first recordings of artists and a music that went on to help change the way that African music was perceived outside of Africa. Great languid rolling epics, or short intense bursts of fervour - it's all here in the crucible of the 'Rail Band'.

"this is not some dry musical history lesson for these recording still sound more vibrant and original than much of what has followed since. Essential"

Nigel Williamson Songlines Magazine

"A terrific first volume, then, that illuminates the formative years of the Rail Band with detailed liner notes and beautifully illustrated graphics of the orginal albums and evocative photos of the musicians from the 1970s era. "
