God, I can't keep up with all these amazing records from the likes of Soundway, Analogue Africa et al. As pleasant as it's been being fired a constant, concentrated blast of African goodness over the past year it can seem a bit overwhelming at times. I reckon I'll be catching up for years! What I really like about the labels doing this stuff is you can tell all their releases are genuine labours of love what with the excellent packaging and insane attention to detail in the liner notes and included imagery. This bumper set (this, the second of two volumes) is no exception and keeps the musical quality as high as ever as it focuses on the emergence of forms, following the beginning of Nigeria's civil war period, which borrow heavily from Western pop, funk and psychedelic rock while retaining the familiar incredible vitality, infectious energy and addictive rhythmic thrust of the area's traditional music. In a nutshell, it's just a ridiculously fun melting pot that I can't see failing to satisfy! Highest of recommendations - I could've told you that before I'd even opened the thing!
