A well-titled set, given the grooves it's got – a motherlode of rare Afrobeat
numbers from the 60s and 70s – served up in a variety of styles that really keeps things hopping! Most tracks here are pulled from other Vampi Soul reissues – and together, they really distill a wide range of African sounds – the funkiest, grooviest styles from the best years of the scene, packaged together as one heavy duty set! There's lots of percussion, gritty guitar, and funky horns – all the sorts of sounds that have influenced the contemporary deep funk underground in recent years – and titles include "Belama" by Opotopo, "Lagos Special" by Bola Johnson, "WTFS" by Fred Fisher Atolobor, "Psychedelic Afro Shop" and "My Girl" by Orlando Julius, "Oriri Jerode" by Godwin Omobuwa, "Progress" by Tony Allen, "Okere/
I Feel Alright" by Victor Olaiya, "Ajo" by Fela, and "Afro Disco Beat
" by Tony Allen.
