Mixing highlife, funk and jazz, and using the latest equipment, they laid waste to all before them. If my house caught on fire, this is the one album I’d rescue. After one listen, I reckon you’d do the same. It’s no exaggeration to say that Geraldo Pino and his band the Heartbeats kickstarted the whole soul/funk/afrobeat scene in West Africa.

B2Power To The People. B3Let's Have A Party. Geraldo Pino & The Heartbeats. PMG Item No: 532088. Mixing highlife, funk and jazz, and using the latest equipment, they laid waste to all before them. In 1966 Fela Kuti was a jobbing musician, eeking out a living with highlife bands. When Gerlado Pino came to town, it changed his life. Pino tore up the scene, he recalls in an interview with Carlos Moore. I knew I had to get my shit together.
Hits like "Power to the People," "Give Me Ganja," "Let Them Talk," and "Make Me Feel Good" further bolstered Pino's celebrity, and when the Heartbeats split in 1969 he recruited members of the Ghanaian psychedelic band the Plastic Jims to serve as his new backing unit. That same year Pino also purchased his own television station and hotel in Port Harcourt, Nigeria, and in the years to follow he rarely left the area, making a handful of exceptions to play live dates alongside acts like Jimmy Cliff, Rufus Thomas, and Manu Dibango.
Geraldo Pino (aka Gerald Pine), is one of the hidden heroes of African popular music.
