A long-lost late '70s classic from Nigerian Prince Eji, a man who's performed with pretty every legend you can shake a sax at: Miles Davis, Bob Marley, Fela Kuti and many more. One of highlife's most successful international ambassadors, Eji's musicianship seeps from every lively groove; the complex horn-play on the title track "Charity Begins At Home", the off-beat tenor sax madness on "Lagos Complex - Highways" and the trippy off-beat harmonies and vocal overlays on "Unity In Africa" are just three of many examples of this album's (and Eji's) unicity.
