  • £18.00


Wally Badarou was at the cutting edge musically with his fusion of African grooves with the emerging electro sounds of the early 1980s. His debut album Back To Scales in 1980 has been long out of print and is considered a treasure by many connoisseurs. Wally plays synthesizer, co-writing and performing Level 42 often considered their ‘fifth member’. He also played with Robert Palmer, Talking Heads, Foreigner, Grace Jones and Manu Dibango. He also known for a later hit single Chief Inspector; and Mambo from the same year (1984) was sampled by Massive Attack. This is a great album deserving appreciation by a wider audience with such an amazing collection of important songs. It was recorded in France, the country of his birth, originally released on French label, Barclay.
