The band came into being when a young trumpet player named Daram Karanga offered to assemble a group to entertain the workers at a copper mine in the Zimbabwean town of Mhangura. During the next five years, the band would relocate from their small mining town to the capital city, go through numerous line-up changes and pay a few more visits to the recording studio, without ever losing the raucous urgency that had transformed them from popular entertainers into titans of Zimbabwean culture. Take One collects the HCR Band’s biggest hits along with several rare tracks recorded between 1974 and 1979, all painstakingly remastered from original master tapes and vinyl sources; originally released on CD by Analog Africa in 2006, this essential music is now available on LP for the first time since the 1970s. Gatefold LP pressed on 180g virgin vinyl includes a digital album as a high-quality download
