Expect deep African highlife + afrobeat.

Soundway has just released a fine reissue by Pat Thomas and Jon K. For us. This is a good reason to add a few pearls from the Analog Africa Edition. Complemented with gems from my own record box and novelties by Guy One this is the most beautiful December afternoon. Love and Peace. Enjoy.
