Over the course of 15 years, Eshete released some 30 singles until the arrival of the communist Derg junta, which forced Eshete and many other artists into exile. Alemayehu Eshete has since gained notoriety in Europe and the Americas with the release of Buda Musique's Ethiopiques series of compilations on compact disc.

Ethiopiques Volume 9 is devoted entirely to recordings of Eshete's earlier music, and Volume 22 covers his career between 1972 and 1974. Other songs have also appeared on Volumes 3, 8, 10, and 13 or the series. In 2008 Eshete toured the United States with fellow Ethipian singer Mahmoud Ahmed, backed by Boston's 10-piece Either/Orchestra. Alemayehu Eshete is sometimes referred to as the "Ethiopian James Brown" or "The Ethipoian Elvis."
