Outreachat said... "This is almost surely my all-time Obey album; I like the energy, his reprise of his old story-telling mode which Obey had favoured in the early 70s, and above all, the fusion of content and form in the brilliant drum sequences. The tenor guitarist on this album, Paul Tao, was the third major one to play with Obey, after Monday John and Segun Awe. 1987 was a huge year for Obey, being the only year he posed any credible threat to Sunny Ade's dominance in juju music since the 70s."

Special thanks to Moos at Global Groove for posting the files for this music.
