MTUME UMOJA ENSEMBLE "LAND OF THE BLACKS" (STRATA-EAST, 1971)




I know it was posted in blog-land already twice but for my money this recording deserves a "flac".
The cover has an already worn out look though the LPs were in fine condition.
Enjoy.

I have always hoped to find a lossless of this one, some times ago I found an original LPs but really to much expensive for my pockets, and in bad condition too....so I have to thank you again and agian for this upgrade of my mp3

Thankyou! Been seeking this in lossless for some time now - much appreciated!

p.s. please support bloggers who preserve wonderful music in lossless formats - an invaluable historical archive and record of human creativity -> i don't want future humans to miss out on bits of data!
