reissue of Count Ossie and The Mystic Revelation’s seminal 1975 album ‘Tales Of Mozambique’ - expanded & fully remastered with the inclusion of two bonus rare single-only tracks, full sleevenotes, exclusive photographs and interviews.

Count Ossie is the central character in the development of Rastafarian roots music, nowadays an almost mythical and iconic figure. His importance in bringing Rastafarian music to a populist audience is matched only by Bob Marley’s promotion of the faith internationally in the 1970s. The Mystic Revelation Of Rastafari are the defining group in bringing authentic Rastafarian rhythms into the collective consciousness of popular music, their unique music is at once rooted in the deep traditions and rituals of traditional drumming alongside a forward-thinking, even avant-garde, artistry influenced by the likes of John Coltrane, Sun Ra, Pharoah Sanders and other pioneering African-American jazz artists radicalized and charged by the civil rights movement of the 1960s. ‘Tales Of Mozambique’ is a truly unique and fascinating ground-breaking album.
