"Sunny at his prime. A superb mix of juju music destined to be a classic as with most of his work. This is juju music at its best."
Polyrhythmic juju music from Nigeria

"King Sunny Ade's 16-piece band, the African Beats, includes five guitarists and five percussionists. Together, they build up multiple layers of rhythms that back up Ade and his (also five) backup singers the way the ocean lifts a boat. Most of the songs settle into extended grooves. Highlights are Ase (with a harmonica solo by Stevie Wonder) and "Gboromiro"."
