AllMusic Review by John Storm Roberts

These are two of the top bands playing the kicking, East Nigerian brand of highlife. This has developed into a tough style, with ferocious guitar and hoarse, urgent vocals. The album includes both Sir Doctor Warrior and Dan Satch's versions of the band in 70 minutes of music covering 1973-1988. One reviewer called this "the dance groove of the year." If all you have heard is the Ghanian version, you ain't heard nothing. This one would sear steak.
