CD Reviews

Great African Sampler
Mark Colan | Medford, MA USA | 10/24/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Lively and danceable, fun African music: Soukous (Zaire/Ivory Coast), Juju (Nigeria), Highlife (Ghana). Some tunes are longer jams.

But look for the Sterns pressing that includes two extra tracks, filling the CD with 79 minutes of music. That edition has a different cover: yellow border, with a graphic of two African dancers on a red background.

This CD is volume 1. There is also a second volume, available separately, also from Sterns."
