This ten track release from Bonga is entitled Angola 74. A combination of 'must have' African music and available, for the first time, alongside it's sister record (Angola 72), on reissued vinyl LP on Lusafrica. Both records come paired with their original artwork as they were in 1972 and 1974. A must have for avid collectors.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 13th February 2018
This is a great album. It is a classic of African (Angolan) music. I think Bonga's prior release, Angola 72, seems a bit more raw, from the gut. Maybe it is just the circumstances of recording (Angola 72 was a record of resistance, Angola 74 was a record of triumph). Since I don't speak or understand most of the songs on the records, my judgment is limited to my emotional reaction to the sounds. If you are really serious about appreciating this great example of anti-colonial resistance and freedom music, why not get both records?
