A good companion album to Various - Sweet As Broken Dates: Lost Somali Tapes From The Horn Of Africa .
Disco, soulful grooves, hints of reggae and funk. A large booklet gives you background on the artists, a window into the political situation in Somalia and the awe-inspiring (and terrifying) story of how the tapes were obtained. The compiler had to go through a lot to get hold of the audio for this package. A really wonderful collection.

If you are not familiar with Analog Africa, you should be and this is a good introduction, if you at familiar with Analog Africa, this is a worthy addition to their venerable archive. Definitely get a copy with the booklet if you can, the stories of what everyone at Mogadishu Radio went through, to record, and preserve the music, and what the folks at Analog Africa went through to distribute it, it really drives home how privileged we are to have access to this music.
