Album Notes
Description from Dusty Groove America:
A searing second set from Souljazz Orchestra -- easily one of the funkiest groups in the contemporary Afro Funk underground! The set's even sharper than their first -- really tight on the rhythms, which are filled with skittish guitars that cut a groove strongly -- vamping and quick-stepping with a wicked sort of feel that brings back plenty of James Brown influence to a 70s African sound! There's lots of great horns and keyboards too -- again played with a sharpness that's wonderful -- a meaningful approach to solos that's not as extended as on other records, but often much more powerful. Vocals are often shouted or called -- second stage, next to the instrumentation -- and titles include "State Terrorism", "Kapital", "Parasite", "Interested Benevolence", "Amen", and "Grasshopper & Toad".

This version was remastered in 2014 for 180g high-quality vinyl. Also comes with free download card.
