Many records on this compilation are from South Africa, but it also covers countries such as Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and Zambia. As in the other six volumes of this series the tracks are only taken from rare LP's and some fetches prices over $1500 for an original. The biggest problem with original records from African countries are finding them in good condition. The turntables where very very poor and the hot and humid climate does not preserve records very good. Sometimes termites eaten away complete record covers. In addition earthquakes, sandstorms, floods, wars, revolutions and other heavy influences made it hard to release albums and keep them in good shape since the late 60's. All this makes this compilation very special beside the amazing good music. The Bands: Abstract Truth / A-Cads / Flames / Freedoms Children / McCully Workshop / Third Eye / Those Five / Suck / Otis Waygood Ten Light Claps / Wildebeest / Mack Sigis Porter / Blo / Ofege / Quentin E Klopjaeger / Rikki Ililonga / Chrissy Zebby Tembo & Ngozi Famil
