Great album -- essential "world music"
I didn't get hear this 2006 re-issue but I've had the original LP and subsequent CD issue for years, and always found it a great listen. The 'Remain in Light' era funkiness with all the samples from around the world was a novel idea at the time - it opened doors for anyone who wanted to mix and match divergent musical ideas to get unexpected and interesting results. However, there was a track "Qu'ran" that was on the original 1981 LP and the first run of CD's but then disappeared, and isn't on this re-issue. So to get the whole MLITBOG, you'd have to seek out either to get that track.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
