The sound reproduction is pretty poor on this comp(at least the re-issue) I bought it for the Edu Lobo-come along, sounds massively compressed and quite terrible. The reissue Pelicans LP press is much better sounding.

For me, this compilation is unparalleled in terms of 70's African highlife/funk/popular music. The selections opens the doors into so many artists and albums, the liner notes giving the full story of the artists and the time this music was released in. Just pick it up, don't give it a second thought. This music transcends time and space.

For Analog Africa I don't think there is much of a difference between the CD and the LP in terms of sound quality. Splendid 2xLP pressing.
