5.0 out of 5 stars The infallible Soundway Records have done it again!, 20 Aug 2010
This review is from: The World Ends: Afro Rock & Psychedelia in 1970's Nigeria (Audio CD)
Over the last two years I have amassed quite a large collection of Soundway Records releases; without even realising it I now have 12 of their compilations! I got this one yesterday and it isn't very hard to see why. Their releases are all encompassing, with splendid artwork and sleeve notes to accompany the brilliant and rare tracks they have dug up. Each individual track has a paragraph of background information and there is an extensive introduction explaining the political and cultural background that helped form and fuel the psychedelic movement in Nigeria's music scene during the 70s. This means that as well as being great music to party to, chill out with or obsess over, it also feels like you are learning something and gaining a greater understanding of other culture's musical revolutions. Soundway really put in that extra bit of effort with their compilations, throwing out all the stops and giving you a complete piece of art to enjoy, listen to, look at and read. If only all CDs were given this much love and attention then maybe a lot of people would be more inclined to actually buy music physically as opposed to just downloading?

I am still digesting the music itself and there is far too much to comment on, but having listened to both discs three times each already in under 24 hours I can safely say that wild psychedlia and traditional african rhythms and style meld together fantastically well, making this a most definitely worthy addition to your collection!
