AllMusic Review by

This Nubian offering has yer basic high-energy percussion backing, as on the Slam cassettes, but the other arrangements are of a very different order. Starting with fewer strings than usual, there appear, variously, somber accordion, crybaby saxophone, and even Andalusian trumpet! It's not a mish-mash by any means; these songs all reveal a level of imagination mostly lacking in pop music.
