Note: This 45 was released, but was censored (along with AE 1020) by the early Derg regime (in spite the fact that Amha Eshete had had an initial green light from the censorship) and has been the cause of Amha's exile. Original pressings might have been destroyed. The songs rereleased on éthiopiques-5 were taken from the master tapes found in Athens.
