PROBABLY THE MOST 
------INSANE------ 
RECORD I HAVE EVER FOUND!!

MULATU ASTATKE 
ETHIOPIAN INSTRUMENTALS LP
ORIGINAL GREEK PRESSING ON AMHA AELP 10


A few weeks ago I found this amazing record. As I went through the crates at the spot I was quite disappointed as I found only 78s in those crates - but suddenly another crate was put on the ground right in front of me!!!.... And this record was first in line.... I could not believe my eyes - as I have heard stories about people travelling to Ethiopia in the seek for this record but turned back empty handed... Here I am  pulling up one of the hardest to find Afro records!!! with a AMHA paper bag for 45s inside too!!!!!
Mulatu is truely a legend. In the early 70s he made up his own "Ethio-jazz" style.
In the start 90s collectors became aware of these 70s releases and began searching for them.
Already then it was quite difficult to find any copies of his releases... and now a days...
FORGET ABOUT IT!!!
Many of his tracks has been comped reissued etc. With NAS and Damian Marley using a sample of "Yegele Tezeta" along with Mulatu began touring with the Heliocentrics in the late 2000s, people got a general awareness of his recordings - including me.
This release consists of instrumentals (as the title suggests) done in Mulatus recognizable Ethio-jazz style which is mix between funk, jazz and world music to put it short!!!

AS THIS IS AN ULTRA RARE RECORD - ACTUALLY A LITTLE TOO RARE FOR ME TO USE FOR DJ-ING OR JUST FOR PLAYING (BECAUSE I WOULD NOT RISK DAMAGING IT).

I WOULD BE WILLING TO LET IT GO IF I GOT THE RIGHT OFFER....
