mulatu astatke – mulatu of Ethiopia. worthy records, W 1020 stereo (1972)
ORIGINAL PRESSING. “Amazing work from the legendary Mulatu Astatke -- one of Ethiopia's funkiest musicians of the 70s, making a rare appearance here on this lost American recording! The album has been a holy grail for years amongst beatheads -- loved for its killer blend of weird rhythms, sweet funk, and super-dope vibes -- and the grooves on the set are really unique -- slow, snakey, and with a sinister, almost other-worldly feel. There's not nearly as much vibes on Mulatu's Ethiopian recordings -- and their appearance here really gives the set a nice American sort of twist -- almost Roy Ayers meets Sun Ra with a hot dose of African funk thrown in for good measure! Titles include "Chifara", "Munaye", "Kaselefkut-Hulu", "Mascaram Setaba", and "Mulatu". ” (from dustygroove)
