It's a treasure trove of 1970s Afro-rock, from the itchy, guitar-driven James Brown-style funk grooves of the African Brothers Band and K Frimpong & His Cubano Fiestas, to the infectious organ-driven dance-pop of Uppers International, which has some of the rolling, cyclical appeal of Fela Kuti, but administered in a less overpowering manner

Fantastic tunes on here, and a great intro to the genre, and being a Contour release, it IS likely to turn up in a charity shop. I'm particularly interested in the band Grutz, who i can't find any more info on, who's music hints at a more prog-fusion tangent.. anyone got any clues..?

Really good compilation of this forgotten/under-promoted area of rock music. Well worth picking up.
