The nine tracks on this years-in-the-making compilation feature music drenched in analog synths, early drum machine sounds, and wah-wah, phase-shifted guitars and basses. It is all seductive, infectious, and timeless. It paints a superb portrait of the musician as a highly original creator and pioneer and adds depth and dimension to the picture we have of African music during the era. (AMG)
