Tony Allen’s Secret Agent LP reissued





Remastered from the original tapes.

Legendary drummer and composer Tony Allen’s LP Secret Agent album is being reissued on vinyl, via World Circuit Records this May.

Originally released in 2009, Secret Agent saw Allen combining Afrobeat with tenor guitar, elements of jazz and funk, horn riffs, and “effervescent keyboards”.
