Once one the big shots of Ghanaian radio, with a few quasi-legendary 70’s albums in the bag, Rob Roy Reindorf had turned to other activities after interest in his sound had slowly waned in the 80’s. But currently it’s flaring up again, so it’s only logical that he would return now. All the better for us: bulky brass sounds, a groovy percussion barrage and lurching wah guitars underpin the high priest’s liturgy with a brew that is difficult to evade: casting a spell it goes straight into your hips and directly up into the head. Something we don’t mind surrendering to. Let the shaman work his magic!
