Emancipation Of Hugh Masekela

LP (Item 32006) Uni, Late 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

4.70 32

Hugh's first album for Uni – and one that really lets him open up his groove! The record moves way past the short trumpet instrumental sound of earlier albums – into a complex groove that mixes Afro soul, LA funk, and loads of nice jazzy bits! The record's got a sound that's nicely messed up – and which shows the crossroads of modern music that passed through Hugh during his best moments. Includes a great version of "What Is Wrong With Groovin?" (different than the Letta Mbulu version!), plus "Sqo", "Child Of Earth", "Ha Lese Le Di Khanna", "Chisa", and "Why Are You Blowing My Mind?". Great stuff! (In the cover with a picture of Hugh in a hat. Cover has light wear, a promo sticker, a spot of tape on the spine and WGN Library letters on the back.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
