This Fantastic compilation has been playing on the work van stereo for some time now and I haven' yet had the inclination to change it. This Psychedelic Afro-Funk compilation was released by Analog Africa( Check out their Blog Here ) and consists of rare 70s Afro-Groove from Benin & Tago, that the blog author dug up on his travels to those countries. I am finding it hard to find the words to describe this outstanding music, which is an awesome mix of James Brown funk, jazzy horns, polyrhythmic beats, psychedelic overtones and african singing. A Primal and raw sounding, upbeat, danceable melting pot of musical styles. The complexity of this music is such a joy to listen to, so much happening all the time. Thanks to Analog Africa for bringing this lost music to a wider audience. I totally recommend the purchase of this album. My Rating 4.5/5
