"To celebrate their 40th release, Comet has made a compilation of their most precious Afrobeat jewels. The label was founded by Manu Boubli and Eric Trosset and since its inception in 1998 it has contributed enormously to the renaissance of the Afrobeat movement. Starting with the release of Tony Allen's Black Voices, produced by Doctor L, and then Psyco On Da Bus, a second collaboration between the two but also including Tony Allen's own group, Afrobeat 2000, this team have released records of a consistently high quality with guest appearances from the likes of Ty (Big Dada) and Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz) as well as attracting remixes from Ig Culture and Kirk Di Giorgio. This record also features tracks from Ghetto Blaster and Africa 70 taken from the compilations of classic rare 70's afro-funk -- Racubah, Ouelele, Bilongo. Oscillating between future-world and classic Afro-funk."
