Lafayette Afro-Rock Band: Raff (Makossa, 1974, Malik)

Afro-rock album.

Everyone cops this for “Darkest Light” and no doubt, awesome song. But this LP is no one-tracker and “Raff,” which opens the LP, throws you headfirst into the heady fusion blend that the Lafayette Afro-Rock Band was known for. “Raft,” in particular, reminds me a little of early Kool and the Gang spliced with a healthy dose of Manu Dibango.

Let’s also agree: one case where you can judge an album by its cover.

365 Days of Soul, #34
