Limited translucent orange colored vinyl LP pressing. With the release of their self-titled debut album in 1972, Cymande emerged as innovators of the black British music scene. Taking influences from their Guyanese and Jamaican roots, the band fused reggae bass lines, Afro-tinged Nyabinghi percussion, psychedelic touches, and American-style funk into a unique sound they've since dubbed as "Nyah-rock." While they were embraced in the US, back home they were largely ignored and soon forgotten by a music business beset by prejudice against homegrown black talent. This self-titled Cymande album features several of the band's best known - and oft-sampled - classics like "Dove," "The Message" and more.
