Miriam Makeba - Iphi Ndilela (7")
Reprise RA 0804, 1969 Germany
Essential slice of Makeba! Afro breakbeat drum intro turns jazzy midtempo vocal groover and then she brings the break back into play. Nice one! Bob Dylan cover on the flip.

Safari Sound Band - Best Of African Songs (LP)
African Safari Club, 1984 Germany
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)
