New Black BloodBlack Blood Featuring AIE (A Mwana) ... LP
Mainstream, 1975. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Supposedly, this is one of the many incarnations of the group that's better known under the names Lafayette Afro-Rock Band and Ice. The material here is more in the vein of work by Ice – in that it's kind of faster Afro-Funk inspired grooves, with bass, guitar, organ, and lots of keyboards ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Chrysalis, 1977. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Later work from the combo also known as Lafayette Afro Rock Band and Ice – but still pretty darn nice – and served up in a style that has more straight Afro-Funk grooving than you'd expect! There's a nicely tight small combo feel to the whole thing – more African than before, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Original cast production of this semi-popular musical from the early 70s – a collection of South African tunes performed by a large uncredited cast.
