[additional notes]
This is a 'remade' version of the original album released in 1977 (see William Onyeabor - Crashes In Love). The original version had 'normal' instrumentation of keyboards, drums, vocals, guitar and other normally recorded instruments and vocals. This version released approximately 5 years later, Onyeabor added electronically generated 'beats', some extra vocals and guitar parts and dropped the track 'Jungle Gods'. The cover has a darker blue color and the text in the lower half of the circle is replaced with "By William Onyeabor wlp1001". Although mentioned on labels this release is mono, the original mix is stereo.
(tracks timed, not mentioned on labels)

Apparently there are two version in existence of this record. The one listed here is the second (electronic) version and has only 4 tracks. The first version is recorded with a full band and has 5 tracks (title = Jungle Gods) and the cover is a paler kind of blue and has more text printed. I don't know if both are from the same year.
