Cult Afro-rock/Afro-funk band Demon Fuzz didn't release much material during its brief existence in the 1970s, but the impact of that material has been immeasurable. Take "Afreaka!", their debut album: largely ignored upon its release, its five lengthy workouts have since been sampled hundreds of times. As this latest CD reissue proves, it remains an excellent album. Check, for example, the meandering psychedelic guitar solos and jazz-rock grooves of "Past Present And Future", the Rare Earth style funk-rock pressure of "Disillusioned Man" and the intoxicating, organ-heavy environmentalist anthem that is "Hymn To Mother Earth". This edition also includes a handful of tasty bonus cuts plucked from the band's equally rare single releases.
