Reissue of the 1972 album from the 70s funk outfit Cymande, heralded as one of the best British funk albums of all time.

Taking influences from their Guyanese and Jamaican roots they fused reggae influenced basslines, Afro-tinted Nyabinghi percussion, psychedelic touches and American style funk instrumentation creating a unique sound which the band referred to as nyah-rock.
