Marijata - This Is Marijata (LP, Academy LPs, 2011 reissue)

Marijata - This Is Marijata
(LP) Academy LPs ALP 006, 2011-03-08

The core trio of the Ghanaian funk band Marijata got its start as the Sweet Beans - a highlife combo sponsored by the Ghana Cocoa Marketing Board. Hard-hitting, hair-rising, Afro-fuzz from Ghana, This is Marijata is the toughest and most sought-after African Funk records of them all! Recorded in 1976, this album is the standard by which all other Afro-Funk albums are measured - it's power, vitality and rawness have been emulated, but never equaled. Fully licensed and lovingly remastered, the Academy LPs/Voodoo Funk Re-issue presens This Is Marijata in all it rough-hewn glory.
(PS Academy LPs will release a second Marijata album soon, and a CD containing both albums)
