VA - African Scream Contest: Raw & Psychedelic Afro Sounds From Benin & Togo '70s

va-african%20scream%20contest.jpg

African funk fans have truly been spoiled this past year, with three installments of Soundway's Nigeria Special series, Drag City-distro'ed Malian reissue label Yaala Yaala up to their fifth title, and Strut just having released its Lagos Jump single-disc follow-up to the unavailable original Nigeria 70 set. Having already enticed Afro-fiends with anthologies dedicated to The Green Arrows and Hallelujah Chicken Run Band, Analog Africa dives right in with African Scream Contest's overview of the '70s scene in Benin and Togo, two countries smack-dab between better-documented hotbeds Ghana and Nigeria.
