This compilation gathers together the cream of the music scene in 1970’s Senegal, where traditional sounds mixed with funk, soul and Cuban music to make a gorgeously slinky blend. Hefty booklets accompany both the CD and the double LP versions, full of useful biographies and beautiful photos. On Analog Africa.

9/10 Sammy 30th March 2016Yet another beautifully compiled and lovingly designed Analog Africa record. The psychedelic-tropical-jazz-funk-afrorock (a full house in genre bingo?) across these records should satisfy those looking for a dance and equally those wanting to chill in the sun. Having recently picked up the Bawobab Orchestra's 'Pirates Choice' LP (equally recommended) and being a massive fan of the Analog Africa previous reissue of Amarra Toure last year - both of whom appear on this compilation - I had high hopes and it truly is another wonderful collection of glorious music. As a 'British nineties indie boy' who has spent the past few years trying to understand the fascinating and frankly incredible world of 70s/80s music from 'that' continent, I find these compilations such exciting records to get immersed in. (I doubt kids from Senegal feel the same way about 'Shine 3')... ...And if that fails to get your head swaying the inlay is an education in itself, particularly for those looking for an entry into the wonders of Afrobeat. Hell, it's worth the £20 just for the photo of the dudes chilling on the bonnet of the beaten up 70's motor inside the gatefold...
