Mulatu Astatke (Amharic: ሙላቱ አስታጥቄ; French pronunciation: Astatqé; born 19 December 1943) is an Ethiopian musician and arranger considered as the father of Ethio-jazz. Born in the western Ethiopian city of Jimma, Mulatu was musically trained in London, New York City, and Boston where he combined his jazz and Latin music interests with traditional Ethiopian music.

Mulatu Astatqé (also sometimes spelled Mulatu Astatke, as he is on the liner notes to this release) might be most known to international audiences through his tracks on the excellent Ethiopiques CD anthology series of Ethiopian music. Long before those tracks were compiled for that series, however, he had an American release with this 1972 instrumental album, on which he's billed as "Mulatu of Ethiopia. Like much of the best of the circa-early-'70s contemporary Ethiopian music on Ethiopiques, it's a fine, at times captivating blend of late-'60s American soul and.

Mulatu Of Ethiopia is the third album Astatke recorded in New York for the Worthy label but the first with a recognisably Ethiopian character. In his liner notes for Mulatu Of Ethiopia, label owner Gil Snapper makes the prescient prediction that Astatke is destined to make international musical history. A trail-blazing masterpiece which sold only.

Strut did such a nice job with the reissue, I wonder why there are no musician credits? In the liner notes Astatke mentions "the sax player" but he is never named -- any have any insight into this, or know who played on the sessions?
  • Ygglune
On his bandcamp, the label says :"Strut present the first official reissue of a landmark album in the field of African music, Mulatu Astatke’s ‘Mulatu Of Ethiopia’ from 1972".So it seems this a total legit reissue. I think Strut is a serious company. I can be wrong...Right, the mono LP is really good, better than the stereo one.Love this release.

Same comments as below, My copy came sealed, but was warped to a degree that it was barely playable. The mastering sounded flat. Origins of the repress are indeed very unclear and I highly doubt it is completely legit. I would not recommend buying this record unless you are sure about the quality of the vinyl.
  • JoJoshura
Can someone please tell me how to tell the difference between the original and the reissue? Thank you!
  • Ginaun
so many reasons. pressing site, master tapes, grade of vinyl. etc.
  • Akisame

  • Vushura

  • Natety

  • Seevinev
Check the labels - they are slightly different in terms of font size thickness, layout - just minor differences I can see from the images up on discogs
