This is a good record, but if you're hoping for some good raw African funk, this isn't the comp for you. Most West African music from this time, even from the rock groups, had strong, propulsive grooves, but the work on this record is much more Santana than James Brown.
It's probably not fair to judge this record on what it isn't rather than what it is, but such is life. If you want hard-pushing West African tunes, try Nigeria Disco Funk Special, one of the Ghana Soundz comps, or best of all, African Scream Contest. If you're like me, though, you'll probably want them all.
