This is a couple of years old now, but I've only just discovered it. I did a search on the forum but I couldn't find any mention of it - surely someone must have mentioned this album when it came out in 09?

The blurb sez:

"Truth & Soul presents it's first collection of rare and unreleased African funk and afrobeat gems that have never seen the light of day until now. Spearheaded four years ago by wolrd famous record collector, Phillip Lehman, African Music Today Vol.1 compiles some of the nastiest afro grooves know to the universe..."

I'm just listening to it now, and I sez: They're not far wrong. I had the good fortune to have this play immediately after The Meters' "Rejuvenation"; that it maintained the high standard set by New Orleans' finest gives some indication of just how good this is.
