Originally issued in 1993 and the last African Head Charge album on On-U Sound for 12 years, released at the height of the band’s popularity as a staple of live music festivals. Continuing the skillful fusion of styles they had explored on Songs Of Praise, this album added elements of trance and electronica to their trademark percussion-heavy sound.

This expanded reissue adds 8 bonus tracks to the original vinyl edition, including 2 that have never been released before. Includes a download card for the full audio plus a double-sided poster insert with excerpts from a new interview with band leader Bonjo Iyabinghi Noah.

Fever Pitch (Raw Cut), No Don’t Follow Fashion, On The Off Beat, Kumasee and Mama Shante Garden all from the original CD version of the album that contained a number of additional tracks not included on the original single LP vinyl edition.
Pursuit (underpulse motion DJ edit) previously unreleased - remix and edit by Patrick Dokter.
Rastaman previously unreleased.
Run Come See Me was included on a 7” single with initial vinyl copies of the album when it was first released. It is unrelated to the similarly titled track Run Come See which appears on the Shrunken Head compilation and the Vision Of A Psychedelic Africa album.
