Psychic Sounds Reserch (US) 2011
PSR 004 (LP) chip boad sleeve. w/insert.
sleeve : EX(wear on edge and corner.)
media : EX+/EX+(some very slightly surface noises, still good condition.)

This is an album by Ethiopian singer Tilahun Gessesse and his group The Walias Band, who have been active since the 50s and were popularly known as "The Voice" during the golden era of the 60s. Originally released on cassette tape in the 70's, this is the first analog reissue by Psychic Sounds Reserch in 2011, featuring groovy rhythms under the influence of US soul/funk and the last Emperor of Ethiopia, Haile Selassie. This is a powerful piece of Afro-funk with a perfect balance of groovy rhythms under the influence of US soul/funk and unique melody lines with minor pentatonic chords under the influence of Enka, a Japanese folk song brought from Japan by the last emperor of Ethiopia, Haile Selassie. The silk-screened jacket on a simple board is also tasteful.
