Mandinka & Fulani Music of the Gambia - Ancient Heart

From All Music Guide:
"Co-produced by bassist Bill Laswell and Gambian griot Foday Musa Suso, this album delves into the West African roots that inspired their fusionary Mandingo project. Ancient Heart features recordings of both of Gambia's two major ethnic groups, the Mandinka and Fulani. But while the 11 songs are fairly true to tradition, the approach is updated by recording the musicians in ensembles rather than the usual solo setting. All in all, this is an extremely uplifting album that features some truly amazing performances."
OK, my friends, I need your help again. I've scoured the blogs but can't find an active download of this record...have a copy? Share a copy? As always, if you upload it to me (you can do that here or by posting a link in the comments for this post), I will put it on my server and post the link here.
