Flaming Drums - Olatunji

African Spiritual/Uhuru
Flaming Drums
Columbia Records
CL 1866

Arranged and conducted by Fred Karlin. Produced by John Hammond

All of the Olatunji LPs I've listened to, to the best of my recollection are very good, but this one is an especially good and groovy blend of African and Western forms. The record reminds me a of a good Yma Sumac LP in that, there is a uniqueness and cohesion from track to track and a sense of drama to the sound that keeps you glued to your speakers.

African Spiritual
Mystery Of Love
Hail The King
