Sunny Ade & His Green Spot Band – The Master Guitarist Vol. 1 (1970)

After a prince, how about a king? Long before Sunny Ade became the music industry hope for a successor to Bob Marley, he was constructing his iconic lyrical guitar style and juju magic. 

This first Master Guitarist album from 1970 sounds fresh, half a century since release, even if the sound quality is not equal to later studio releases made with more sophisticated equipment. Most of the songs are tributes to people, perhaps benefactors underwriting the band. Percussion percolates as Ade's voice and guitar weave throughout.

Very tasty!

Truly enjoy!
