Akido - Akido (1972)
Well let us start this day of heavy music posting out with something completely off the wall. What i have posted here is a African-psychedelic album from 1972. What this album has on it is a few really good afro-funk/psychedelic songs that really make the album stick out. Other than those few good songs: Jo Jo Lo, Awade, and Midnight Lady; the album is just a normal psychedelic album. What it does have going for it that separates this album from every other psych album that came out in years before and years to come is that this album relies very heavily on this whole African motif that it incorporates throughout the entire record. Whether it be the erratic tribal drumming in the background or the chanting before the guitars come on in songs like "Awade". Regardless, it is still quite a good premise for world-psych music and its originality makes it a good pick-up.
Please do comment if you download, I would like to know how i am doing, not to inflate my ego, but just to make sure those who are visiting and downloading are enjoying the work i put into this.
