Incorporating elements of rock, soul, latin and psyche into Afro-beat grooves from artists as diverse as Manu Dibango, Gasper Lawal and Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou, this is an essential addition to the growing range of global psychedelic classics and will certainly appeal to fans of "African Scream Contest", "Nigeria Rock Special" and the Analog Africa series!

Highly recommended!!
