A long-overdue release on CD of a classic title from 1972.

Never before officially reissued this wonderful album continues the ground-breaking music of Brotherhood Of Breath's debut album - Mighty music for the head, the heart and the feet.

"The Brotherhood of Breath is the kind of band you want to tell people about. It's not for private enjoyment, or for worship by a elitist cult.

The Brotherhood's music is for sharing with the world, and that's what makes its name so apt: the musicians and the audience are brothers (and sisters), and they share the same breath, becoming merely parts of the same giant metabolism. Chris McGregor came out of South Africa in 1964, leading a band called the Blue Notes. Three of those Blue Notes can be heard on this record, and the fact that Mongezi Feza, Dudu Pukwana and Louis Moholo are still with Chris is some tribute to the fantastic empathy they share, both personally and in the music they make together." - From Richard Williams contemporary sleeve note.

Chris McGregor (leader, piano, African xylophone), Malcolm Griffiths (trombone), Nick Evans (trombone), Mongezi Feza (pocket trumpet, Indian flute), Mark Charig (cornet), Harry Beckett (trumpet), Dudu Pukana (alto saxophone), Ronnie Beer (tenor saxophone, Indian flute), Alan Skidmore (tenor and soprano saxophone), Harry Miller (bass), Louis Moholo (drums, percussion), Mike Osborne (alto saxophone, clarinet), Gary Windo (saxophone).
