    The bones of afro-funk laid bare on this outrageously funked raw collection from the mind-bending legendary Benin band on Analog Africa! 

    Not much to think about here, every track is killer. Horns are packed with a punch, vocals urgent, funky hammond breakdowns, hypnotic Farfisa solos, gritty guitar riffs, distorted bass lines, and a non-stop locked-in rhythm section. 

    Full-colour song-book too!
