Man, you have some great ears. I've been working my way back grabbing some great stuff. Thus far, of all these blogs providing access to this music, this one is tops. You've help inspire me to create my own blog. If you like the stuff on this site, you may dig the stuff at Lost Soul.

Hey there, I'm new to the whole blogging scene and was hoping you'd be gracious enough to add me to your links list. I'd really appreciate the gesture, and of course the favor has already been returned.

Best,

Hello Pharaoh,
thanks for the opportunity to hear Tony Scott in Afrika! A triumph, looking forward to tracking down the '67 self titled lp too...

What a superb album! Thank you for sharing this unique music. The trumpet playing struck me too. As already mentioned, he does sound a little like Don Cherry, and before reading the "fine print" I thought that it might even by Hugh Masekela.

Brilliant! Tony Scott never ceases to amaze. Thank you for posting this - I had heard of the album but had never been able to find it.
