'Phase IV' is BLO at the height of their not inconsiderable powers. Buzzing after a hugely successful tour of Denmark and Norway, the Afro funk trio returned to London in 1975 and headed straight into the Orange Studios to get the magic down on tape. Rightly regarded as the holy grail of Afro Boogie, 'Phase IV' is an extraordinary blend of highlife, rock, blues and soul that sounds just as good through headphones as it does on the dancefloor. Turn it up loud. (Peter Moore, www.africanrevolutions.com)..

Also available: PHASE IV (CD).
