Safari Sound Band - Best Of African Songs (LP)

Mainly an all afrobeat affair, two tracks stand out, the disco fun on Karibuni Kenya and heavy drum driven Kenya Safari. Both are great. Stunning EX+ copy that could easily pass for NM.

King Sunny Ade & His African Beats - Aura (LP)

Nothing rare but these King Sunny Ade records are really worthwhile if you dig synthy sounding afro beat. Start with Ase but Ogunja and Oremi are great too. Soft hairlines but playback not affected.
