Original copies are mythically scarce, and even a 2013 reissue was woefully undersupplied, especially so when considering the precedence and brilliance of the music. Both sides play through as though mixed by a DJ at the GRM, seamlessly segueing eight songs with psychedelic effects and rolling percussions to make one of the brightest, sun-drenched listens that we've had the mercy of picking up in mid-winter.

During an extended stay in Peng-Hu, an archipelago located in the Taiwan Strait, for months in early 2013, Dauby made a temporary experimental music studio where he parsed and reorganised a mass of field recordings made in and around the area. The final composition binds and glances the sounds of underwater fauna, the local harbour, music played during funerals and shortwave broadcasts to create an aural sketchbook of his stay.

"'Sorrow Tears And Blood' bookended the Nigerian army's deadly raid of the Kalakuta Republic, Fela Kuti's self-appointed state domicile, and Kuti's hostile feelings toward upper-class Nigeria are prominent on both sessions... 'Sorrow Tears And Blood', the first recording released after the Kalakuta's capture, is fiercer; the band's sound almost seeming to drip blood. Slower and more persistent, the ominous grooves here no longer bother with metaphor, crying out bluntly, "some people lost some bread, someone has just died... them leave sorrow, tears and blood." Alongside Woody Guthrie's "Struggle", this is as stirring as musical social protest gets."
