Assagai was an Afro-rock band from South Africa, active in the early 1970s in London. It consisted of five members: drummer Louis Moholo, trumpeter/flautist Mongezi Feza, tenor saxophonist Bizo Muggikana, guitarist/bassist Fred Coker, and alto saxophonist Dudu Pukwana. Keyboardist Alan Gowen and percussionist Jamie Muir were also briefly members (1971-2).Assagai's self-titled debut album was released in 1971.They recorded for the British label Vertigo Records.(wiki)
Contour issue (2870 -394) is a re-issue of the Vertigo label release, both record and sleeve state the date of release as 1971 but it may have actually come out slightly later.(discogs)
From this album i chose "Telephone Girl" and "Cocoa". Enjoy!!!
