issued in 1975, this is the articulation of zambia’s zamrock ethos. while other albums - rikki ililonga’s zambia, witch’s lazy bones!! - are competitors, it’s hard to best this album as it covers each major quadrant of the zamrock whole: it came from the mines, its musicians were anti-colonial freedom fighters, it envelops zambian folk music traditions, and it rocks - hard.
this 2x12 inch reissue contains reverb mixes of all tracks on vinyl 2.

in 2009 now-again records reissued the natural yogurt band s first platter - away with melancholy. originally released in a limited run of 1000 pieces by gerald jazzman short, those records quickly disappeared and the jazzman himself had no plans to offer another helping. the result? an audience searching for psychedelic music library vibes from the golden era of the 60s and 70s meticulously recreated in the new millennium were left starved. two years later, the band (really former little barrie drummer wayne fullwood and miles newbold) presents to you another platter of delights: tuck in with... the natural yogurt band. with their sophomore album, fullwood and newbold serve up more of what made the natural yogurt bands debut so special: quirky irreverence abounds, but the band has expanded their menu to include influences from around the globe. this album is presented in double 10 inch gatefold lp format in paste-on, thick-cut cardboard case.
