UK Percussionist Robin Jones his Seven recorded this essential Afro-Latin and Brazilian classic in 1972 and this limited reissues is a welcome sight with originals commanding serious money. Uptempo, four hundred feet or more on the floor stompers like “El Maja”, “Carica Papaya”and the track that Robin himself said is the first recorded Samba tune in the UK: “Batucada Da Vida” are complemented by the Afro-Boogaloo of “The Wailer”, the soulful grooves of “Chant Afrique” and a particular highlight being the funk drenched “Atlas”. Stunning work and good to see it accesible on vinyl.
