Product Details


On this comp. of '70s funk from Benin & Togo, curator Samy Ben Redjeb documents some of the best footprints that James Brown left on West African groove.

"This project initially took off in August, 2005 when I arrived in Cotonou without any special expectations, just hoping to lay my hands on few good records. What I found in the process cannot really be described in words. This first trip was followed by eight more to the region. Thirty Months and a few thousand records later Analog Africa is proud to present this compilation which comes with a 44 pages full liners notes and features many rare photographs handed to me directly by the artists. 16 interviews were made and recorded in various cities in Benin & Togo with musicians, producers & sound engineers who kindly offered their support to reconstruct the history of the 70s music scene. Composers gave me a detailed biography, hilarious anecdotes and sometimes the story behind their song."
