Crashes in Love was the first album Onyeabor released in 1977. He actually released it twice. As with most things Onyeabor the story is a little vague, but it seems he needed to repress the album and had lost the parts. At least that is the story we heard. This is the first version and is what we call the 'acoustic' version.

The later version has somewhat different sounding tracks of different lengths that have electronic instruments on them as well. That is William Onyeabor on the sax by the way, we have no idea what else he played. Some of these songs you have heard before on our compilation and some will be new to you. Original release 1977.
