"A stunning voyage back to the early days of the African record industry. Concertina bands and doo-wop singers from South Africa, accordion groups from Kenya, West African brass bands, unaccompanied vocal and drum ensembles from Nigeria and Tanzania, plus bands from East Africa with their Arabic influences. The huge variety of early African pop and traditional styles is revealed. A musical treasure-trove. Authoritative sleeve-notes and some brilliant authentic photographs complete the package."
