Got to write a few words about this smashing box set we've sourced. With the burgeoning revival of interest in African music from Benin, Togo, Nigeria & Ghana amongst others, this 5 LP set - spanning a highly fruitful 13 year period in Ghana's rich legacy - is an absolute gem (and a total bargain to boot!). It's the propulsive rhythms, hypnotic vocal harmonising and sheer wealth of soul & passion that makes this music some of the most vital & moving in the world. Be it more stripped down Ghanian blues to itchy & celebratory high-life & wild calypso, this compilation is a hugely passionate trawl through some of the more traditional minded & fiercely genuine sounds to emanate from this fertile region. You should check out some of the dirtier, funkier afro-beat stuff on this Soundway label too & the beautifully compiled sets on Analog Africa, all pretty astonishing. This puts much of the Western canon of cartoonish popular music to shame but if Vampire Weekend get even 100 people into the real deal then they've not done that much harm eh? Heart bursting gear.
