CD Reviews

The price is right
E. Varick Wettlaufer | MY own private Idaho | 06/11/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Having purchased and listened to many, many cd's on African and Afro-centric music this one rates right down the middle. While not electrifying (as some are) this gives you a middle of the road. text-book overview of "tribal music" in Africa. I have found on many of this type of compilation that many of the titles are mediocre at best. I would highly recommend the cd, "Africa; Music of a Continent" that accompanied a African Arts show in London. I would also like to see more liner notes on the tribes themselves w/ their histories, i.e. The Griot of West Africa. All in all $4.00 + shipping is pretty much a bargain, especially if you will be using this for a classroom."
Good music and features Babatunde Olatunji

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is the same CD as "All The Best From Africa" but at a lower price. Why? Don't know. I would have given it a five star but a lot of the songs fade out long before they are done. It has a good selection of different kinds of music, vocal, percussion, string, etc. The main reason I like it so much is that it features Babatunde Olatunji on tracks 2,3, and 14-20. This is rarely heard Baba music especially to those only familier with his "Drums Of Passion" recordings. Some of the sound quality is not that great but I've heard much worse on other recordings. The CD also has squat for liner notes, but all in all, for the price, it's definately worth it."
