Ali Farka Toure rose to prominence - in the West at least - for his 1990s collaborations with Ry Cooder. By that point, he was already an established star in his home country of Mali, renowned as the leading exponent of "Mali Blues". Here, one of his most sought-after albums, a self-titled set from 1977, is given the reissue treatment. It remains a fine album, with Ali Farka Toure's distinctive blend of finger picking Malian blues guitar and evocative vocals providing a focal point throughout. A handful of cuts also come laden with sharp, Celtic-influenced strings, which only serve to enhance the majesty of Farka Toure's heartfelt vocals and trademark blues guitar.
