Smokin' Set *****

As others have mentioned, this is of lesser sound quality, but beyond that it's a solid collection of music. There are numerous addictive cuts here. A good place to investigate African music of the 70's.

Best for collectors

pjamesbonobo

A lot of interesting material in this collection but the sound quality, unfortunately, is sub-par by modern standards. Lots of distortion -- no doubt attributable to the lack of high quality recording equip available at the time these recordings were made. This one is going to be of interest primarily to collectors and ethnomusicologists.

With all the great 70's African music re-releases this year, you might ask "How is this different?" The Ebo Taylor cuts, which are worth the price of admission alone, tell the story. They're more pingy and bouncy, and less rock-y and fuzzy. It's great driving music, and perfect for late afternoon blahs.
