Having formed during the height of the Zamrock period, Salty Dog was a three man band modled after the Jimi Hendrix Experience.

Having wanted to base the band around the concept of the force of life, Salty Dog was chosen as a result of being slang for ‘sperm’.The 8th release on the Zambezi imprint, Salty Dog is one of the most obscure Zambian titles from the era having failed to achieve the success of some of their peers like Witch.

The self titled release is a combination of psychedelic rock, blues and folk, with all english songs. Really good from start to end, essential for collectors of African rock and insanely rare as an original. As a bonus for this release, there’s also the non-LP single that was released before the album titled ‘Sunday Morning Sunshine’.
