Richie Egan has bestowed upon us his inspired cover of that seminal 1982 paean ‘Africa’ which he recorded last week. The thing I remember most about Toto are their striking album covers. Toto IV was my favourite cover and that’s the album that ‘Africa’ resides on. As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti, Richie hopes you like it.
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation /
I stopped an old man along the way /
Hoping to find some long forgotten words or ancient melodies /
He turned to me as if to say, hurry boy, its waiting there for you
