This Is Marijata

Back in 1976, legendary highlife artist Pat Thomas decided to throw his weight behind Ghanian three-piece Marjarita. Thanks to his patronage, they made quite an impact with their debut album (Pat Thomas Introduces Marjita), before striking gold with their killer follow-up, This is Marjita. Since then, the album has become something of a "holy grail" for Afro-funk collectors, with copies changing hands for astonishing sums of money. Happily, Mr Bongo has decided to license and reissue it. The album contains four superb workouts: the hard funk brilliance of ‘Break Through’, the organ-heavy Afrobeat fuzziness of ‘No Condition is Permanent’, the reggae-influenced wonder of ‘I Walk Alone’ and the superior highlife of ‘We Live in Peace’.
