Mandingo - New World Power

Such a beautiful, upbeat record...and one I was bummed to learn I no longer have in its entirety. I don't know if I accidentally deleted some tracks or what but the only thing left from this record is today's download...If you could help me with the missing tracks I would be most appreciative. You can leave a note in the comments or upload the tracks to me here. I will update this post with a link to the songs, which I will host, if and when I receive them. Thanks in advance. and because of one amazing reader of this blog I now have a copy to share, posted below.

About this record (from All Music Guide):
"...Mandingo are a supergroup of sorts featuring legendary Gambian griot Foday Musa Suso on kora, percussion, and vocals; Laswell on bass; and Jeff Bova and Nicky Skopelitis on keyboards and programming. The result of mixing their disparate styles is an upbeat Afro-funk sound perfectly suited for dancefloors from New York City to West Africa. Eclectic and accessible, New World Order's fusionary sound is not unlike that of Peter Gabriel's work with Senegalese singing sensation Youssou N'Dour, balancing universal appeal with Suso's traditional African influences."
