"This CD is an excellent compilation of Kanda Bongo Man's music from his Kwasa-Kwasa era of the late 80's to mid 90's. Unlike most of Kanda's albums which are painfully short and last just under 30 minutes at best, this one is almost 70 full minutes of super quality hit after hit. Another thing that I liked about this CD is that the versions of the songs on this CD are done in their full and extended editions, as opposed to the rushed and abbreviated versions of the same songs found on previous Kanda albums, like the Sai on Sango, for example. It's usually the other way round with many musicians. If you have never listened to Kanda and are wondering what the heck I'm talking about, this will be a good introduction to his music. It doesn't by no means contain all of his hits and best songs (infact my best Kanda song is not there), but it does cover most of them."
