Official reissue, originally released in 1978 on the Blackspot label (DECCA's West Africa division). Tunde Mabadu's ultra-rare debut album, Bisu, which includes the super groovy "Red Jeans", differs from the later 1980 Viva Disco album by a much more pure African style. A beautiful and soulful production in which Tunde's deep voice and sax move on the excellent horn arrangements, percussions, the wah-wah rhythm guitar, and weird keyboards and synths (at times psychedelic as in the nine-minute "Blue Bird"). As wrote on the original liner notes of the era: "His music will mesmerize you from the first track. A dedicated musician especially to his African roots with so much to offer musically."
