Originally from Masomeloka, Madagascar, where he was born in 1949, the young Sylvin Marc enters the Descomarmmond studio in 1967 in Antananarivo to record this intrepid 7-inch single. Far from being a mere imitator of Soul Brother Number One lost in the Indian Ocean, Marc shows an innate sense of rhythm and a vocal flexibility that's both exuberant and exciting. His singing in broken English does not diminish the freshness of this interpretation which leans heavily towards a psychedelic funk Grail. The B side pays hommage to another invention of Soul Brother # 1, one track spread out over both sides since the tight groove would not fit on just on the A side of the single.
