This is an AWESOME compilation of super-funky, raw, and rootsy African funk from 1970s Benin and Togo! An essential party rocking album of super-rare African funk and afrobeat that shows the influence of American funk and rock alongside Cuban and Congolese music, as well as traditional local styles. Sandwiched between Ghana and Nigeria - the two countries most associated with killer African funk and afrobeat - Benin and Togo are the undiscovered jewels in the West African musical map!
The cd comes with a mammoth 44 page booklet crammed full of extensively researched sleeve notes and photos! Very highly recommended!
