5.0 out of 5 stars The first and greatest afrofunk 30 Jun 2011
By Mailian
Format:Audio CD
Gerald Pine (Sierra Leone) gathered the Heartbeats, changed his name into Geraldo Pino and recorded these fantastic tracks in 1966.
This is party music, with funky bass, superb organ and Pino's exhortations and singing, before James Brown and Fela Kuti.
Absolute masterpieces of afro-funk are the title track, Power to the people, Let's have a party and the instrumental On the spot.
Retroafric please reissue this at an affordable price for all African and funk lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavy indeedd - just like early Santana meets Lonnie Smith 1 Aug 2006
By Paul Petrissans - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Yeah people give 5 stars on this site real easy, but this one is well-earned. A major inspiration for Fela, Pino was Africa's answer to James Brown. The last six tracks are a continuous live show, which is awesome. An electrified audience, great keyboard work, and extended "Afro Soca Soul" grooves reminiscent of Santana's early work with Greg Rolie. Any afrobeat fan needs this. And if you're looking to get past Fela and see what else was going on in west Africa at the time, this will further hook you into the world beat web.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic funk rock/afrobeat from Sierra Leone 13 Nov 2013
By islander - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Geraldo Pino & The Heartbeats were a great soul/funk/afrobeat band from Sierra Leone who were well known throughout west Africa in the 1960s. The liner notes to the album explain that Pino was an influence on Fela Kuti. Though technically the music on this album predates afrobeat as we know it, there are definite similarities.
Well done to Retroafric for finding and releasing this on CD. It sounds great! Some is studio recorded and it sounds like some tracks were live performances. It is excellent dance music, and I agree with the other reviewers that if you like Fela Kuti or Santana this is for you. With 70 minutes and 12 songs, it is good value (although I see from the prices the CD is now getting rare and MP3 may be the way to go). I'm glad I found it on CD here a while back.
Highly recommended for anyone exploring the music of west Africa from the 1960s.
5.0 out of 5 stars yow! 11 July 2009

This is some of the funkiest funk in the funk universe. Delightful, jolly and rollicking, and you will not believe the guy on organ. Check out the solo on "Let Them Talk." There's a reason Fela Kuti envied this guy.
