Mindblowing funk from 70s Africa – a collection that's overflowing with great rare bits! If you ever thought that the sound of Afro Funk was just Fela, Tony Allen, and Manu Dibango – think again, because this set will really expand your horizons! The package was expertly selected, compiled, and annotated by Afro Funk DJ Miles Cleret – a man who really knows his stuff, and who's spent most of his adult life tracking down obscure bits from all corners of the dark continent. This set focuses on funk grooves from the vastly-undocumented Ghana scene – and it's honestly one of the best collections of Afro Funk we've ever heard – smoking and heavy from bottom to top, and filled with great music that we never would have caught otherwise! An instant treasure – and with tracks that include "Africa Is Home" by Joe Mensah, "Atwer Abroba" by Ebo Taylor, "Disco Africa" by Ogyatanaa Show Band, "Tamfo Nyi Ekyir" by Apagaya Show Band, "Kye Kye Pe Aware" by The Sweet Talks, "Mondo Soul Funky" by Ebo Taylor & Wuta Wazuri, "Samarin Bolga" by Uppers Chapter 2, "No Condition Is Permanent" by Marijata, and "Agbadza" by Uhuru Dance Band.

Forget the "rock" in the title, and just focus on the "funk" – because this set of tracks is a massively heavy batch of Nigerian numbers from the 70s – all with the same solidly soulful feel as more familiar Afro Funk work of the time! There's a definite emphasis on ... CD
