Mulatu Astatke - Mulatu of Etheopia
Can you tell me more about this? I've flirted with buying the 2017 reissue for a long time but could only find it from Strut Records in the UK and never wanted to pay that much shipping for something I can listen to digitally. I Googled and came up empty on a 2020 reissue...who put this out?

Thanks!

Strut did a big 3LP reissue earlier this year.
Stereo LP, Mono LP and then an LP of roughs/demos/alt takes.


Got into his music after the 2017 RE was sold out, otherwise would've just bought that because honestly I don't really need all the extras, but whatever.
This record rules and Strut puts out a lot of great stuff, so I just sacked up and bought it on one of the past Bandcamp Fridays.
Likely going to jump on a couple more Strut releases next Friday for Bandcamp day again - Idris Ackamoor and The Pyramids' newest and will prob pre-order the upcoming Sun Ra Arkestra LP as well.

Also not sure why this one isn't on BC, but if you're unfamiliar with these two releases, definitely check them out. They were my intro to Mulatu and I think I love them the most out of everything of his I've heard. Just incredible music.

Thanks for this info. I'll likely pick this up if/when I see it around.

The albums I'd add to the best of the year conversation are Waxahatchee's Saint Cloud and Perfume Genius's Set My Heart on Fire Immediately. "On The Floor" may end up on my shortlist for song of the year.
