Deep double sider from a couple of young ladies who used to sing together in an Addis Ababa bar. Mulatu heard them and said ‘why don’t we try something…’
One of 2 x 45s that they cut on consecutive Philips releases.
Some psyche sounds in there plus extended solos in the mid section of each track. Deeep!
