analog africa volume 3 - african scream contest
2008 / analog africa

what a wonderful collection of raw and psychedelic afro sounds from the 70s. this album has been variously described as "a thrilling discovery" (the observer), "raucous funk gems from the 70s" (the word) and "an explosive afro-funk collection dripping in the feel of hot nights in crumbling mud-brick nightclubs" (daily telegraph). definitely one of the best compilations released this year.
