No Sunday Lie-in for this Lion

Sunday Morning - Manu Dibango

Recorded in Paris whilst the Atlantic Revue was on tour, this tune showed Manu Dibango picking up the Stax baton and running with it

Carolyn Franklin, Aretha's sister is belting out the vocals on this 1969 track - with the Cameroonian Lion showing off not only his sax skills but chipping in with some very fat hammond playing too

Originally from 'Saxy Party' it can now be found on African Soul - The Very Best of Manu Dibango
