Tropical Diaspora (Germany), 2018. New Copy (pic cover)... $12.99
"El Doctor" is a lively little number with a nice hint of revolution – performed here by a combo from Italy, but with a very South American vibe!

One of the lesser-known 70s session from Fela – but a great one too, and a record that captures the Africa 70 group at all their early raw best!
