They say: Hard Afro Pop featuring large percussive rhythm section and front line.

We say: One of the best-loved of all the KPM LPs.

Afro Rock was recorded at Morgan Studios by John Cameron and Alan Parker in London in 1973 as a collection of stripped-down African rhythms, virtuoso jazz instrumentation, fuzzed up wah wah guitars and spaced out library breaks. The percussion is effortlessly funky, and those flutes so melodic, it’s as if the LP was crafted with the beat lovers of the future firmly in mind.

As Cameron himself described it in Unusual Sounds, this is “heavy duty drum-and-bass salsa music”.
