Kingston Connexion reissues Light Of Saba

Repress of Sabebe, originally recorded in 1978.

Sampler

The French label Kingston Connexion, who have carved out something of a reputation for reviving off beat classics, are reissuing The Light Of Saba’s Sabebe LP.

This 1978 album - produced by Philip White and recorded at Aquarius Studios - was the afro jazz roots collective’s final full length release. The repress features one bonus track, Legba Praise, and a never before published interview with White in the sleevenotes.

Two of the tracks – Africa and Sabebe – were previously put out on 12” by Honest Jon’s. These are very Afro-funk in nature but the record also cleaves toward slow funky reggae (Callie Weed) jazzy dub (Music In My Brain) and percussion led roots (Thy Kingdom Come).

All in all, a welcome release for those who don’t have money to burn at auction sites. Fingers crossed for a reissue of The Light’s collaboration 12” with Michael Smith, Word Sound, to follow one day…
