Speaking of western Africa…here’s a set I’ve been sitting on since DecemberPsychedelic Aliens, Psycho African Beat. A funky, early 70s, Ghanaian psych-soul collection culled from a mish-mash of tracks destined to labor in indefinite obscurity prior to the entry of the Academy Records gang.

  1. This is some amazing stuff. I was introduced to Afrobeat a few years ago and fell in love immediately. I’d love to hear more like this on your blog.

  3. For anyone who thinks Africa is…wild animals…insane despots…uninhibited breasts…stay on this site. AD continues to challenge and destroy the media’s limited version of this great continent.

  4. Way diggin’ it!

  5. “uninhibited breasts”

  6. i stumbled across this album at the record store where i work by happenstance and was surprised to see it on here, but then again, as it is mind blowing music, it should come as no surprise that you would cover it on here!
