The onlyBlack Bloodthat's actually worth having in my opinion. It contains their great downtempo funk track 'Avenue Louise' and the catchy breakbeat track 'AIE', which are both available on 45, but it also has the hypnotic Afrobeat track 'Jesus Wa-Basungu' on it. Produced byRalph BenatarandJean Kluger.

This African band called Black Blood
was performing in a club in Brussels, Belgium when producer Jean Kluger
(Roland Klugers older brother, who produced Sail-Joia ao.) heard them.
He offered them a record deal and cut this single with them. At first,
the song Marie-Therese was the a-side. The song 'A.I.E.' was just
another version of a song Kluger had recorded with the Yamasuki's. When
it came out, radio's were playing A.I.E. and it was a hit, so it was
put on the a-side on later pressings. Now, about the music: A.I.E.
starts off with a drumbreak filled with percussion sounds, right before
the catchy melody comes in. The vocals are african shouts. Chicano is
one of their's best work in my opinion. It contains their great
downtempo funk track 'Avenue Louise' and the catchy breakbeat track
'AIE', which are both available on 45, but it also has the hypnotic
Afrobeat track Jesus Wa-Basungu on it. Produced by Ralph Benatar and
