Sticker attached to shrink wrap says:
"In 1975 Gyedu-Blay Ambolley unleashed his unique brand of Simigwa music on an eager yet unsuspecting world with the release of this, his debut album. Suffused with his larger-than-life personality, this Lp is an absolutely irresistible manifesto of his heavy Afro-Funk Simigwa philosophy.
Academy Lps and Voodoo Funk have revived this incredible record. Restored from the master tapes and featuring the rather remarkable original artwork.
Limited Edition CD pressing of 1500 copies with 15"x15" poster of the cover artwork."
