The Execrable Bede From the opening notes of the compelling "Yèkèrmo Sèw" to the haunting end of the 20th track, "Tezeta" (both recorded in 1972), this is a spellbinding compilation. Each and every track deserves the designation "favorite". Buy this album -- Your mind, body and soul will thank you. Favorite track: Nètsanèt.
