i have a decent quality mp3 of it (courtesy of resident baffer rez), let me know if you want it

that is either

1) not a flute

or

2) a very strange flute

FTA u 're talkin about this tune in general?
Aquizm tune produced by Mad prof on 10" (Ariwa) with a bunch of dubplate mixes for each & every UK sound system from this time (around '81)..Historical stuff...

more infos from http://www.auctioneer.freeuk.com/items/kkdp.htm

There has been much speculation over the years of the origin of this recording.

Kunte Kinte....Provenance

Neil Fraser (Mad Professor) stated on the Blood and Fire message board (Phorum) in August 2003. - "About the Kunte Kinte origin. To solve the mystery get a copy of Roots, the film based on the Alex Hayley book. The sound track that heavily influence the dub classic is quite clear. Originally recorded by a virtually unknown Battersea group called Black Volts, the track was rough mixed by Paul (Smykle) at Island inspiring countless of versions. Unfortunately it was never released. At that time no one wanted to know about such instrumentals,for years only Jah Shaka and some sounds from the country like Wasifa, Nyashanti were playing that track. As usual, the stone that the builder refused..... "

Other posters on the B&F phorum namely Russ D and Danai both concur that this tune might have been mixed by Paul Smykle and or Terry Barham during their time at Island Studio's and therefore might be able to throw more light on its origination. Their comments made recollecting conversations with people in the industry they had discussed it with over the years.

no, IMO,this is Mad P's remix of the tune (from around 1981)...the one that shaka use to play back in time....build for sound system & played by them :wink: Black Volts cut is defenitly more ina roots mood than the recut.
