just a repackaging of the albums Jealousy, Progress, No Accomodation for Lagos and No Discrimination. not sure if there is any difference between this and the reissues (also on here) or not. fyi.

They Say All Music Guide

Here is the bottom line on Afro Disco Beat: fans who already have Tony Allen’s Afro-beat solo offerings — Jealousy, Progress, No Accommodation for Lagos, and No Discrimination — on CD will find nothing new here. These four albums are presented here in fine sound on two discs in a handy digipack. The art is fine, and there is a lengthy liner essay by Max Reinhardt, which is complete and historical. The price is fair, but not excellent, and with the exception of the essay, there is little to recommend it over anything else unless you are either new to Allen’s work or are not in possession of all these recordings — which are solid, dynamite, all-killer, no-filler outings with Fela (who produced the first two) and Afrika 70 and the Afro Messengers, which featured Kuti on piano and saxophone. – Thom Jurek
