This review is from: World Psychedelic Classics 5 - Who Is William Onyeabor [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Damon Albarn is a big fan, which gives you an indication of the sheer quality of this album. He recognises that William Onyeabor is a very special musician who, whilst obscure with a relatively modest catalogue, has produced some of the most catchy, genre-bending songs imaginable. Luaka Bop are responsible for the 'World Psychedelic Classics' series, and I strongly recommend you acquire them all. This collection brings together prime cuts from Onyeabor's elusive repertoire that would cost you hundreds if you bought them individually. African funk, disco and cheesy low fi electronica - he manages to serve up all three in one dish and blows your mind in the process. Fantastic Man.
