Saitana - Baby Don't Go LP
Label: Tooth Factory
Saitana's debut Baby Don't Go in 1976 saw him return to the producer of the Beaters first album, Ray Nkwe, whose JAS Pride label was undergoing a mid-70s boom. In contrast with the mod sensibilities of the early Beaters, Saitana came out of the gate with a completely new look to suit the times, sporting an impressive Afro, an embroidered dashiki and an amicable grin on the album's cover. A mix of soul, folk, blues and rock the debut from Saitana is not to be missed. Recently mentioned by Trevor Noah (The Daily Show) as one of the albums that influenced him as a youth. Taken from the original reels.
